Abstract

The goal of this project was to provide the Walvis Bay Corridor Group with recommendations to enhance the capacity of Namibia’s transport sector. Through archival research and interviews with members of the ocean-based shipping, rail, and trucking industries as well as Namibia customs, we determined the importance of the sector to Namibia’s economy and identified its strengths and weaknesses. We recommend increased investment, streamlined document processing and 24-hour port operations as ways to enhance Namibia’s transportation and logistics sector.
