At present, the port is served by three shipping lines: Delmas, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Inchcape.
Tanzania president John Magufuli and Uganda president Yoweri Museveni agree to construct the Tanzania-Uganda oil pipeline at the 17th East African Heads of State summit in Arusha on 6 March 2016. The pipeline will run for 1,400 km from Lake Albert basin to the port of Tanga. The pipeline was initially agreed to run from Uganda to Kenya to the Lamu Port and Lamu-Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport Corridor. The pipeline is to cost over $4 billion and will provide 1,500 direct jobs across the region. The three companies that have a stake in the project are Total S.A., China National Offshore Oil Corporation and Tullow Oil, who preferred the Tanzanian route due to safety concerns in the Kenyan Northern corridor. The construction is to begin in August 2016 and will take two years to build.
