The company also offers road transportation services using its diverse fleet of trucks from dry goods to temperature controlled trucks as well as container carriers which navigate cargo by road throughout Eastern, Central and Southern Africa for both short and long haul transportation.
“We are proud that through our services we are able to connect cargo from Tanzania with the rest of the world and bring the world cargo to Tanzania and the rest of Africa. Commitment and excellence is core in our business,” she said.
TAHA is a business association grouping together all aspects of the horticulture industry in Tanzania. Since its inception in 2004 it has successfully brought together the large scale professional operations and the many growers’ groups and small holders into a single bloc with a single business oriented set of interests.
The advocacy work often supported by BEST Dialogue and other partners, have built the capacity of the association to deliver information to members, which in turn has led them to utilise better services offered by TAHAFresh.
