DANGOTE GROUP PLANS RAIL CONNECTIONS IN NIGERIA

Dangote Cement Terminal managing director in Lagos Akin Adesokan is quoted saying the group intends to construct lines connecting all its cement factories to the Nigerian national rail system, to reduce the cost of transporting its products. Dangote envisages establishing an international freight system to boost the export of its products to countries in the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas).

Adesokan said the Dangote group had invested heavily on haulage with the purchase of over 2,000 trucks to distribute cement to the various depots in the country. “This is our own corporate social responsibility initiative and no other company has done this.”
