Dar es Salaam is the largest city in Tanzania. It is also the country’s richest city and a regionally important economic centre.

It is located on the Tazara Corridor (also called the Dar es Salaam Corridor) which is a strategic artery linking southern Africa with east and central Africa. There is increasing traffic on this route from two directions: from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia in the south, and from the Nacala Corridor in Malawi and Mozambique. The traffic is largely sugar, cement, fuel and machinery.
