Guide pratique pour la mise en concession des terminaux à conteneurs

Deux associations de gestion portuaire, l’AGPAOC pour l’Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre et l’AGPAEA pour l’Afrique de l’Est et Australe ont élaboré avec le soutien du SSATP un guide sur les concessions de terminaux à conteneurs pour la région. Le guide offre des conseils pratiques et stratégiques aux décideurs politiques et aux directions des autorités portuaires, dans leurs efforts pour attirer des partenaires privés dans l’investissement et l’exploitation des terminaux.

Reviving Trade Routes: Evidence from the Maputo Corridor

This new SSATP discussion paper reviews the experience of an apparently successful corridor to help understand optimal mix and trade-offs in reviving historical trade route. The Maputo Corridor, which had fallen in disuse during the troubled period in Mozambique, is widely regarded as one the successful corridors. It has experienced tremendous growth, attracted large industrial and transport investments, and strengthened ties between neighboring countries over its almost two decade long history since the end of the apartheid era in South Africa and the Peace Agreement in Mozambique.

Les passages aux frontières le long du Corridor Nord

La première image qui vient à l’esprit quand on pense à une frontière terrestre en Afrique est celle d’une longue file de poids lourds qui attendent leur tour pour accomplir les formalités. L’amélioration des infrastructures routières était supposée réduire les coûts et les prix de transport. Malheureusement ces progrès sont neutralisés par les pertes de temps aux frontières. La création de poste de contrôle juxtaposé s'est rapidement imposée comme une solution miracle ces dix dernières années.

Border Crossing Monitoring along the Northern Corridor

When one thinks of border crossing in Africa, the image that comes in mind is that of a long queue of trucks waiting idly to fill out paper. The improvement of road infrastructure was expected to reduce transport costs and prices. However, all the benefits derived by this achievement are undermined by time lost at the border. In the last decade, several border posts on main trade corridors in Africa have been converted into One Stop Border Posts (OSBP), which have been perceived as a miracle solution to save time.

The Chirundu Border Post

This paper presents the findings of an initiative undertaken by the SSATP and its regional partners to monitor transit performance along the North-South corridor, a major trade corridor. Based on the extensive data collection exercise carried out along the corridor, the Chirundu border post, between Zambia and Zimbabwe, was identified as one of the key impediments to the smooth flow of traffic, and it was therefore decided that it would be the pilot one-stop border post created for the Southern African region.

Guidelines on Vehicle Overload Control in Eastern and Southern Africa

Endemic overloading of commercial vehicles has led to the deterioration of roads in most Sub-Saharan African countries. Unless the problem is taken seriously, there is no doubt that it will negate the benefits expected from the vast resources invested in road infrastructure improvements. All the sub-regions in Africa are keen to identify effective solutions. As a contribution to this effort, the SSATP has worked with some of the regional economic communities, individual countries and the private sector to compile a set of guidelines.
