Ethio-Djibouti Railway Vows to Reverse Losses

By Bemenet Wondewossen, Addis Fortune

The Ethio-Djibouti Gauge Railway is set to double the number of freight trains a day to four pairs by November in an effort to break even. It has been functioning with two pairs of freight trains a day – sending two trains to Addis and two to Djibouti – for the past year but is operating at a loss.

With the additional freight trains, the Railway will be able to generate 100 million dollars in revenues a year. Its operating cost currently stands at 70 million dollars a year while generating only a little over half of the expenses.

In three years, the Railway plans to add more trains and operate six pairs of freight trains a day in order to generate 150 million dollars in revenues a year. Last year, the company generated 40 million dollars in revenues by transporting passengers and cargo, registering a 29pc increase from the previous year.

During the first half of 2020, the Railway generated 26.3 million dollars transporting 38,400 containers that carried 730,000tn of goods in 588 freight trains. Among the transported commodities, 73,000tn of fertiliser and 60,000tn of grains were ferried by 29 and 23 trains, respectively.

“We tried to ensure efficient transportation of agricultural commodties,” said Guo Chongfeng, general manager of China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation Ethiopia Branch Office.

In 2018, the company transported 128,722 passengers and generated 1.7 million dollars from this service. The following year, the number of passengers fell to 84,073 and the revenues surpassed 1.2 million dollars.

The number of passengers has declined due to conflicts and security issues between the border of Oromia and Somali regional states that involved road blockades, according to Christopher Kang, from the Ethio-Djibouti Gauge Railway

The company has also been operating with multiple challenges, according to the general manager, who mentioned that unsustainable electric power and water supplies, train collisions with animals, theft on railway facilities and attacks on the trains are the major challenges limiting the company from meeting its goals.

Last week, the company held the “Development Strategy & Freight Service Introduction Conference” at its station located in Lebu in the presence of Dagmawit Moges, minister of Transport, Tan Jian, Chinese Ambassador to Ethiopia, Brook Taye (PhD), a senior advisor at the Ministry of Finance, and Elsabeth Getahun, president of the Ethiopian Freight Forwarders & Shipping Agents Association.

During the conference, Ambassador Tan Jian, who will soon complete his mission, requested that the government allow the company to engage in door-to-door delivery of the items it transports. He also called on the government of Ethiopia to accelerate the construction of oil transport facilities and make payments to Chinese companies that are overdue.

During the conference Dagmawit Moges, minister of Transport, said that her office will work with the Ethiopian Customs Commission to make sure the logistics and the customs clearance is facilitated efficiently and to make the import of raw materials and export of commodities seamless.

The company aims to cover 40pc of the country’s freight transportation service and provide a 30pc price discount compared to the heavy vehicles, according to Tilahun Sarka, director-general of Ethio-Djibouti Railway.

Abebe Dinku (Prof.), a lecturer and civil engineering expert at Addis Abeba University, says that doubling the freight trains is exciting news. But he recommends the management of the company invest in human resources, technologies and machines such as loading and unloading equipment to deliver efficient service.
