As countries across Africa gear themselves towards growing and stimulating inter-regional trade, the transport corridors being developed across the continent are important passageways for the movement of freight.
Though the growth and development of rail across Africa is in the pipeline over 80 percent of all freight being transported is on road.
Transporting goods on trucks is an expensive business. Africa can be challenging at the best of times due to non-tariff barriers even though governments across the continent are trying to make it easier for the flow of goods from one country to another.
The logistics of transporting freight can be a harrowing and expensive exercise.Especially if a transport manager is not armed with key and pertinent information – regarding the route, border posts, costs, relevant documentation required at borders, waiting times at the border posts, location of wellness centres,road conditions and where the tolls and weighbridges are situated.
3S Media in association with FESARTA have released the Africa Corridors Handbook which gives transport and logistics managers all the key information they need before drivers embark on a journey.
Having the correct information on hand is critical for every transport operator that is moving freight across Africa and now it is available in one concise handbook. Click the following hyperlink to purchase the book.
