More firms embrace the railway

Railway Cargo trains are gaining more attraction, with more firms opting for them to ferry their cargoes.

From its lean profile when it started its shift to cargo business two years ago, the Nigerian Railway Corporation’s (NRC’s) cargo service is becoming a beehive with more firms turning to the railway to move their cargoes from Lagos to other parts of the country.

The latest on the growing list of firms that have opted for the rail cargo is Dangote Flour Mills, which  ferried its flours from Lagos to Kano last Friday.

The NRC, it was learnt, has moved 50,000 tonnes of flour, a negligible tonnage of wheat for the Nigerian Flour Mills weekly, 50,000 tonnes of cement, freighted for Lafarge Cement, large pipe cargoes from Lagos to Zaria, and 5,000 tonnes of fertiliser, which took off last month to Kano from Lagos and 5,000 tonnes of granite (ballat) for construction industry.
