The port of Maputo is expected to process almost nine million tonnes of cargo in 2010, over 26 million tonnes a year by 2015 and almost 50 million tonnes a year by 2030 according to a report on the development of the port as part of a $750 million investment programme under the Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative. The port plans a programme of improvements over the next 20 years, involving facilities, equipment, roads, railways docks and drainage. This will see an increase in rail cargo from 10 to 36 trains a day and an almost 1,000 per cent increase in trucks processed through the port.
