Joint venture (JV) company Lobito Atlantic Railway (LAR), which is the concession holder for the operation, management and maintenance of the Lobito Corridor spanning Zambia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), has placed an order for 275 new container wagons from South African company Galison Manufacturing for an undisclosed sum. The container wagons will be delivered in three tranches, with the first wagons due to arrive in Lobito from the fourth quarter. They will be able to carry 10 ft, 20 ft and 40 ft long containers, providing flexibility in terms of the kinds of loads to be transported.
