The Musina Intermodal Terminal (MIT), launched on Monday, is set to reduce the cost of cross-border trade, especially for bulk commodities, on the North-South trade corridor. The terminal, about 3 km outside Musina and about 13 km from the Beitbridge border post, will serve to move commodities, including coal, copper, nickel and chrome, as well as citrus, maize and tomatoes, from road to rail, and vice-versa. The terminal is accompanied by the development of the N1 bypass route, which will move the freight vehicles off the congested Musina N1 highway, according to property development specialist Lionshare CEO Isaac Chalumbira, who spoke at the launch.
