African Transport Corridors.

Fifteen African Countries are landlocked: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Chad, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, Eswatini (Swaziland), Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Implications for these countries:

  1. High logistics costs (up to 77%);
  2. Too far from the largest African and World markets;
  3. Cannot take enough advantage of Globalization model.

Benefits of African corridors for landlocked countries:

  1. Gateway for the country (import and export of goods);
  2. Regional economic development: Concept of Corridor as engine of the socio-economic development;
  3. New industry and related services;
  4. Creates employment.

According to the “Regional Integration and Trade Department” of the NEPAD, there are four types of African corridors.

  1. Transport (only one mode);
  2. Multimodal (more than one mode, for example, Road and Rail transport);
  3. Logistics (the institutional framework has been harmonized, related high-value services);
  4. Economic (Furthermore, attraction of investments - public and private-, new economic activities in the corridor region).

The Trans-African Roads (economic area of the African Civilization) consists of nine corridors.

Highway From - To Kilometers
1 Cairo-Dakar 8,640
2 Algiers-Lagos 4,500
3 Tripoli-Windhoek 9,610
4 Cairo-Gaborone 8,860
5 Dakar-N’Djamena 4,500
6 N’Djamena-Djibouti 4,220
7 Dakar-Lagos 4,010
8 Lagos-Mombasa 6,260
9 Beira-Lobito 3,520
TOTAL 54,120

These African Corridors should connect with direct routes all the African capitals, improve the Road transport facilities and finally contribute to the Economic Integration of the African continent.

  1. 54,000 kilometers;
  2. Near 25% of African corridors are missing links;
  3. Estimated cost to complete the Trans-African Roads: 4.2 billion dollars;
  4. Main promoters: the African Union, NEPAD, and all the Regional Economic Communities.
