6.14 Transport cost study for the Northern Corridor

The Northern Corridor is the busiest transport corridor in East and Central Africa, linking the Kenyan seaport of Mombasa with Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and southern Sudan. It is a multi-modal transport corridor combining road, rail, waterways and pipeline modes of transport.

A study was carried out to enable the Transit Transport Co-ordination Authority of the Northern Corridor to reformulate policy to reduce transport costs along the corridor and to guide investment in transport infrastructure. This is the executive summary of the report for this study.

The executive summary explores why logistics costs along the Northern Corridor are high. It examines transport sectors and identifies the key issues faced in each sector. The executive summary also presents priority policy measures to enhance transit movement, lower logistics costs and enhance competitiveness.
