The port of Beira in recent years has seen a large growth in the volume of cargo that passes through the corridor, which consequently has been generating traffic congestion in the city many times.
In order to reduce pollution and noise near built population centers, bring a better quality of life for residents of Beira and extend the useful life by reducing maintenance costs for EN6 and Municipal roads, leveraging one of the main economic drivers of the city of Beira, needs were identified to improve some urban aspects in order to make port operations more flexible and to bring solutions to the main stakeholders of the corridor.
Two large milestones for the Residential & Commercial Park are in the portfolio: Construction of the new access road to the port of Beira (dedicated access to the port and the park) and development of the pilot phase of the park for the implementation of production and logistics units in a dedicated area, close to the Port of Beira and the main accesses (rail and road) to the “Hinterland”.
The new access road to the park and the port is being promoted by Beira municipality council (CMB) with support from the Netherlands, with several technical and feasibility studies of this important infrastructure already completed. Particularly, the possibility of a public-private partnership with the private sector is explored, in order to alleviate the state in this investment, since due to the commercial character that this road will serve (industrial area and port), enormous possibilities are presented, such as recovery of private investment through tolling, on a concession basis.
The Munhava Industrial and Logistics Park will serve as a logistics center for Beira Corridor, which is positioned as the shortest and fastest route to the Hinterland and one of the main import / export gateways to SADC countries (350 million consumers).
Aiming to become a “REFERENCE LOGISTIC HUB FOR HINTERLAND COUNTRIES AND OPTIMIZE PORT OPERATIONS”
The park offers a strategic location in the city of Beira (near the port, road, railway, airport) with the aim of installing industrial and logistical services such as: Factories, Warehouses, Processing Industries, Manufacturing Industry, Transport and Logistics, and the like. .. that can benefit from the city’s strategic position as well as the logistics park itself.
The new road access dedicated to the Industrial & Commercial Park and the Port of Beira, will improve the logistical support infrastructures in the corridor, as well as alleviate and improve the safety and quality of life of city residents.
50 Ha were prepared for the pilot phase, which already has the necessary landfills, the sanitation, water and energy infrastructures necessary for the proper functioning of future facilities in the Industrial & Logistic Park.
