ABOUT US

Committed to Africa

We are a dynamic, innovative, international infrastructure construction and operating company looking to finance, build, manage and transfer various rail construction projects throughout Africa; which will dramatically improve the lives of the people of Africa. 

Our long term hopes and goals are to create substantial, beneficial transformation in each country TransRailnet projects are situated. The movement of people is hampered by the lack of affordable, reliable and even non-existent transportation alternatives and upon construction of our rail systems, the citizens will be able to move freely about the region at little cost. We will create educational programs for trade, university and primary schools to allow youth to see that a career in rail and its supporting industries is a long term employment solution. Producers of everything from produce to mined minerals will be able to get their product to port in a safe, quick and much more affordable option than is now available. None of this will be possible without the extremely experienced executive staff that has been assembled on the construction side. The company will be able to complete the project from land to sea internally. We will partner with local and regional companies as we see the need as long as those companies adhere to detailed employment, construction and operational standards. TransRailnet intends to hire locally as much as possible with a special focus on those individuals and industries that will be affected by the existence of the new rail systems. We realize that shifting unemployment from one sector of the transportation industry to another is not how we want to do business and our hiring practices and strategy will reflect this mindset. There will be a mentoring program in place once each project is underway to enable unskilled individuals to become more skilled and for those that have experience, they will be able to add to their skill set. 

While it is easy to develop a rail system for one country, the internal countries of Africa need access as well and many of our projects include at least one landlocked country in the long term plans. 

Infrastructure can no longer be defined as a railroad, an airport, or bridges tunnels and roads. In the 21st century we now have to include people as part of the plan. TransRailnet wants to be the purveyor of people and products for the benefit of all.
