The BBR line became the first “Green Line” implemented and BBR undertook to follow and implement a comprehensive environmental management policy, which was independently conducted for the company, by international consultants.
BBR understands that when its customers commit to importing or exporting, effective and timeous communication is vital. Real time communications from South African ports to Bulawayo and to end destinations are now in place
In business, time is money. This direct route saves time by having a single operation with no exchange yards on its line. BBR owns marshaling yards at Beitbridge and Bulawayo. Rates are competitively structured to reward freight volumes.
Our policy is to ensure the Health, Safety and Welfare at work of all our Employees and any other persons who may be affected by our work activities. We will work with all stakeholders and adopt good practices to pursue our aim of continuous improvement.
The BBR line became operational in July 1999 and was commissioned by His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe on 1st September 1999. Its main business is the provision of bulk transport services over its 350 kilometres railroad link on the North - South corridor between Beitbridge (at the border of Zimbabwe and South Africa) and Bulawayo into hinterland.
