WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Zambia Railways Limited (ZRL) is wholly owned by the Government of the Republic of Zambia. It is mandated under the Railways Act to operate Freight and Passenger Trains. [ see our 2014-2018 Strategic Business Plan ]

About ZRL

ZRL was incorporated in 1982 and was set up to be the main carrier of mining raw materials and supplies.
From 2003 to 2012 the company was in private hands but little was achieved to change the once vibrant railway company to a modern firm. As a result, the Government of the Republic of Zambia repossessed the company from Railway Systems of Zambia in September 2012 with the aim of making the rail firm the main carrier of bulk cargo and passengers. ZRL has over a 1,000 employees throughout the system.
