This is a key project along the Beira Corridor which will promote more usage of the Corridor and is planned on a piece of land measuring 22 hectares. Currently significant shipping into Zimbabwe and other  surrounding countries is coming through the ports of Durban and Port Elizabeth at a great cost. The dry port will therefore decongest pressure on the Beitbridge border post. Major developments have been undertaken to improve road and rail infrastructure both on the Zimbabwean and the Mozambican side of the Beira Corridor.
