坦赞铁路局暂停运输服务 此前每月输送约7000吨铜

SMM12月7日讯:坦桑尼亚 - 赞比亚铁路局(TAZARA)周三表示,由于赞比亚铁路工人罢工,坦赞铁路暂停一些运输服务,包括铜精矿运输。

坦赞铁路是运输非洲第一大铜矿生产国民主刚果、第二大铜矿生产国赞比亚所产铜精矿的重要运输通道,但是由于TAZARA未能及时支付工人工资引发了工人罢工。

TAZARA的发言人Conrad Simuchile表示,赞比亚铁路工会要求支付10-11月份拖欠工资未果而罢工,赞比亚和坦桑尼亚之间的列车服务被无限期中止是因赞比亚的工会员工罢工。

Tazara发言人表示:“赞比亚和坦桑尼亚之间的列车服务在赞比亚的工会员工罢工后无限期中止。过去几个月里,每月从民主刚果和赞比亚运输的出口铜至少为7000吨,另外每月还向赞比亚运输至少3000吨进口钢铁和10000吨化肥。

从坦赞铁路2015年7月至2016年6月的年度财政数据中可以看出,坦赞铁路一年的货运总量达到13万吨,大大超出2014-2015同期的8.7万吨。

TAZARA由坦桑尼亚和赞比亚共同管理,双方各持有一半股份。

Tanzania-Zambia railway halts copper transportation after strike

LUSAKA, Dec 6 (Reuters) - The Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) has suspended all train services, including the transportation of copper following a strike by workers in Africa’s second-largest producer of the metal, the company said on Wednesday.

The line is an important route for copper exports from Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Africa’s top producer, but the firm transporting the metal struggles to pay its workers, prompting strikes.

TAZARA spokesman Conrad Simuchile said train services between Zambia and Tanzania were suspended indefinitely after unionized employees in Zambia went on strike, demanding payment of their unpaid salaries for October and November 2017.

“In the last few months, we have been transporting at least 7,000 tonnes of copper exports from DRC and Zambia per month,” Simuchile told Reuters.

“In addition, we have also been conveying at least 3,000 tonnes of steel and 10,000 tonnes of fertiliser imports destined for Zambia every month.”

In the 2015–2016 financial year from July to June, TAZARA’s annual total freight traffic reached 130,000 tonnes from 87,000 tonnes in 2014–2015.

The TAZARA railway is jointly owned by the governments of the Tanzania and Zambia on a 50-50 basis. (Reporting by Chris Mfula; Editing by James Macharia and Louise Heavens)
