Transport


  Multimodal transport—whereby roads, railways, airlines, and shipping operate in harmony—can contribute significantly to growth and productivity if the modalities are well integrated. In Africa, unfortunately, integration is not the rule. AICD found that corrupt customs administration and restrictions on entry into transport markets are blocking the development of multimodal transport. These and other impediments delay freight, raise the costs of moving international freight, and compromise the logistical systems on which global trade depends. Transportation costs increase the prices of African goods by a whopping 75 percent.
