    THE TANZANIA - ZAMBIA ROAD SERVICE - A COMPANY JOINTLY OWNED BY THE FIAT COMPANY FOR ITALY AND THE GOVERNMENTS OF TANZANIA AND ZAMBIA -- BEGAN OPERATIONS ON WEDNESDAY (JUNE 29) TO HELP ZAMBIA'S VITAL COPPER EXPORTS.

    IN THE BEGINNING, 200 35-TON LORRIES AND TRAILERS WILL BE USED ON THE ROUTE FROM ZAMBIA'S COPPER MINES TO THE TANZANIAN PORT OF DAR-ES-SALAAM. LATER IN THE YEAR IT IS EXPECTED THAT 455 LORRIES WILL BE IN OPERATION.

    THE FIRST SHIPMENT OF COPPER TO LEAVE THE MINES AT NKANA-KITWE WAS DESTINED FOR GERMANY.

    THE JOURNEY TO DAR-ES-SALAAM WILL TAKE ABOUT FIVE DAYS, AND ON THE RETURN RUN THE LORRIES WILL CARRY MUCH-NEEDED PETROL AND FUEL OIL TO ZAMBIA.
