Located along an increasingly important international trade corridor and benefitting from over 1400 km of Indian Ocean coastline, Tanzania is well positioned to expand its share of regional transit and trans-shipment activities. The country already serves as an international gateway for six landlocked African countries, making the development of its transportation sector a regional priority. Meanwhile, a push for domestic industrialisation necessitates a major overhaul of increasingly congested road, port and aviation networks. Addressing aspects of financing and actualising development spending will be a challenge for upcoming transportation development, but this has created new opportunities for private investors, as the government increasingly seeks to launch new projects under public-private partnership models. This chapter contains an interview with Jared Zerbe, CEO, Tanzania International Container Terminal Services.
