Ethio-Djibouti Rail Introduces New Stations to Commuter Service

The Ethio-Djibouti Railway has added five new stations to its commuter service from Addis Abeba to Djibouti, bringing the total to 19. The 765Km long railway, which is Africa's first fully-electrified transboundary railway, transported over 77,300 shipping containers between Ethiopia and Djibouti last year. It managed a little over 86 million dollars in revenues over the period, a 37.5pc jump from the figure recorded in the previous year. The Railway's refrigerated train service is an important cog in the export of horticultural products, while other goods it transports include imported fertiliser, wheat, edible oil and vehicles. The Railway transports around a quarter of Ethiopia's export and import freight to and from ports in Djibouti.
