In 2021, the Ethiopia-Djibouti railway, which connects Addis Ababa to the port of Djibouti City, generated $86.13 million in income, up 37.5 percent from 2020. Over the course of the year, the line was used by 449 passenger trains and 1469 freight trains, transporting 77,357 TEUs. It had been able to transport 96 special fertilizer trains and 13 special wheat trains into Ethiopia.

The company also increased operational efficiency, reducing the time it takes to process a freight train at the Port of Doraleh in Djibouti from three to one and a half days, and the time it takes to load and unload at the dry port of Modjo from 12 to seven hours.
