The Walvis Bay Corridor
The Walvis Bay Corridor Group is a public-private partnership established to promote the utilisation of the Walvis Bay Corridors, which is a network of transport corridors principally comprising the Port of Walvis Bay, the Trans-Kalahari Corridor, the Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lubumbashi Development Corridor (previously known as the Trans-Caprivi Corridor), the Trans-Cunene Corridor, and the Trans-Oranje Corridor.
The Walvis Bay Corridor Group’s public-private partnership set-up allows it to pool resources and authorities of both transport regulators and transport operators, thus effectively serving as a facilitation centre and one-stop shop coordinating trade along the Walvis Bay Corridors and linking Namibia and its ports to the rest of the southern African region.
The ports and corridors in Namibia are strategically positioned to give the country a competitive positioning as a transport hub for all regional and international trade between Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries, Europe, the Americas, and the rest of the world.
The new and well-maintained port and corridor infrastructure and the safe and efficient transport services provided by the transport industry, coupled with the reliable support of the regulatory authorities, give the Walvis Bay Corridor Group a competitive positioning in achieving its aim of becoming the leading trade route in southern Africa.
