African Ports and Rail Evolution

0

National development plans across the continent are prioritising transport infrastructure upgrade and development projects. Substantial growth in trade volumes is predicted with total corridor volumes on road and rail expected to increase from 13.6 million tonnes by 2020 to 40 million tonnes by 2040 and the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCTFA) set to create the largest free trade zone in the world and increase intra-Africa trade by 52% by 2020.

Against this backdrop, Africa’s largest transport event, African Ports and Rail Evolution, welcomes dozens of African ports and rail authorities and thousands of qualified maritime, transport and logistics professionals to optimise hinterland and maritime connectivity, improve efficiency of rail networks and define the future of maritime and overland shipping across the continent. Efficient and effective transport systems and modern ports and railways are key to unlocking new trade opportunities and export markets.Click here to view site
