The Gulu Logistics Hub is designed as a dry port with both rail and truck terminals. Construction commenced in May 2020. This project was funded by European Union together with UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) through Trade Mark East Africa (TMEA).
The project contains warehouses, container terminals and general lifting equipment. The facility is designed to offer handling and storage services, space for stakeholders dealing with freight transport; freight forwarders, shippers and transport operators and accompanying services such as customs inspections, tax payment, maintenance and repair, banking and information communication technology. The hub will also act as a designated area for transportation, transshipment, organization, separation, coordination and distribution of cargo for national and international transit on a commercial basis. Operationalisation of the GLH is underway.
