Darka for Trading strikes gold in Eritrea

November 17 - History was made in November when a project cargo consignment was moved for the first time across the Sudan/Eritrea border following landing at Port Sudan, Sudan. The consignment, an 82 tonne crane was destined for Bisha gold mine in Eritrea

Port Sudan-based Darka for Trading moved the urgent and essential shipment to the mining project from the quayside. The total length of the move was 800km; the last 130km was over unmetalled roads and, as the photos show, in places required the use of bulldozers and other construction equipment to fix and level the uneven roads. The move took five days to complete.

In the summer, at the annual conference of the WWPC, Mohamed Osman of Darka for Trading was elected as a new member for the project forwarding network's Board of Advisors.
