Maritime Transport in Africa

Description of the Subject: African Transport Corridors.

Fifteen African Countries are landlocked: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Chad, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, 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 the Globalisation model

Benefits of the African corridors for the 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 the 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 harmonised, 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 Civilisation) consists of nine corridors.

Highway From - To Kilometres
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 kilometres
  2. Near 25% of the 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
