USTDA mission considers intermodal improvements in Southern Africa
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency invites American companies to submit proposals for consideration for an upcoming agency-sponsored mission to Southern Africa to review intermodal transport opportunities that may be eligible for assistance.
The mission will consider projects in rail, inland waterways, transportation corridors, intermodal transportation links, as well as alternative financing mechanisms to stimulate development of efficient rail and transport industries in Southern Africa.
The projects identified for USTDA assistance by the mission could offer commercial opportunities to U.S. companies, the agency said.
USTDA has selected David Burns, a railroad industrial engineering consultant, to conduct the mission. Burns has worked on 35 national railway systems and managed more than 70 missions for the World Bank. He has been involved in seven other USTDA projects, including the recent Trans-Kalahari Corridor Feasibility Study.
