Engineering solutions provider Transnet Engineering (TE) has been awarded a contract to supply 80 wagons to Democratic Republic of Congo- (DRC-) based logistics and transport company SWALA International Logistics.

This follows a site visit by SWALA executives to TE's Koedoespoort plant, where they witnessed TE's capabilities in manufacturing rolling stock products, with a particular focus on freight wagons and locomotives.

During the visit, SWALA expressed an interest in the SHR29 flat wagons. The company requested additional technical information to assess the suitability of SHR29 flat wagons for its operational requirements.

SWALA's services include the transportation of general and mining products and fuel, freight brokering logistics and supply chain management. SWALA has recently gained access to the SNCC railway line, in the DRC, enabling it to transport goods within its market and support other players in the region.

SWALA has signed significant deals with TE to strengthen its operations on the SNCC railway line and facilitate the transportation of commodities in the Southern African Development Community region.

The company last week also hosted a delegation from TE to its operations in the DRC, where it announced the launch of subsidiary company SWALA Rail Solution.
