WELCOME TO ZAMBIA RAILWAYS LIMITED (ZRL).
ZRL was constructed with the main objective of being the carrier of mining raw materials and products in the country.
Until 1990s, nearly all Zambia’s foreign trade was transported by rail. Today, trucks are the dominant transport mode. The resulting damage to Zambia’s roads and concerns over congestion, safety and environmental damage have led to widespread calls for the Government to act to reverse the switch from rail to road. On 10th September 2012, GRZ repossessed ZRL from the concessionaire. The handed over Rolling Stock and Infrastructre is in a deplorable state.
