Building Trade Connections: Growing logistics channels in Africa

0

The cornerstone of a successful trade is the efficient distribution of goods from the source to all points of sale. As such, cultivating logistics and distribution channels is necessary for the successful implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). 

The continent is made up of over 50 different countries whose levels of development vary vastly. Each country needs to seek its solutions locally, but governments need to come together to improve intra-African trade and cross-border co-operation.

 AfCFTA will undoubtedly be a breakthrough in reducing the cost of shipping in Africa and improving efficiency. The amount of time that will be spent on customs clearance is set to drop drastically.  Currently, it takes more than a week at one-border stops in some countries.
