Operations at Forbes Border Post in Mutare have resumed since the road to the port of Beira is now open.
Haulage trucks were failing to reach the port after bridges were destroyed in Mozambique due to the devastating effects of Cyclone Idai. Mozambican authorities communicated this week that temporary roads had been constructed to facilitate trade. In an e-mail dated March 24, Michael Jensen from JJ Africa; one of the biggest players in transporting cargo from the port of Beira to the inland; advised his colleagues that the road was now accessible. A visit to Forbes Border Post by The Herald yesterday showed that bulk fuel tankers, small vehicles and other haulage trucks were now travelling to and from Beira.
