The first refrigerated container was loaded onto the Ethiopia-Djibouti train, carrying 24 tons of avocados from the Koga area of Ethiopia for shipment to Europe via the Société de Gestion du Terminal à conteneurs de Doraleh. Ethiopian Minister for Transport Dagamawit Moges launched the container at an inauguration ceremony at Modjo Dry Port. The project is the result of a cooperation between the governments of Ethiopia, Djibouti and the Netherlands allowing Ethiopia to export refrigerated goods including fruit, vegetables and flowers.
