Abstract

This paper aims at presenting the methodological lessons of corridor performance measurement carried out in Africa. Based on current experience, we conclude that, while road drivers’ trip diaries may be useful, the core of monitoring activities should mostly rely on existing consolidated data (customs and port data) and limited surveys (freight forwarders, major trucking companies, truckers and transport unions), especially to benchmark corridor performance.

Keywords: Transport corridors, Africa, Northern Corridor, Indicators, Performance measurement
