Maputo Corridor Logistics InitiativeAdd to Favourites
The Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative is a non-profit, membership organisation established in 2004 by private sector role players on the corridor. The primary purpose of the organisation is to integrate, coordinate, communicate and facilitate development and ease of movement of freight along the Maputo Corridor and to address bottlenecks to trade through a partnership between private sector users and public sector bodies on the corridor. The primary objective of the organisation is to reduce the cost of doing business and increase efficiency.
Is to work with our public and private sector partners to support the development of the Maputo Corridor into an efficient and sustainable trade and transportation and to ensure a favourable climate for investment and trade, making the Maputo Corridor the first choice for the region’s stakeholders.
To work with all stakeholders to ensure cost-effective, seamless, efficient, competitive and reliable trade routes for the region.
The functions at the core of MCLI’s operations are:
- Facilitation of stakeholder engagement
- Communication and information dissemination
- Lobbying through the mandate of stakeholders to influence public policy
- Advocacy through access to market best practice with regard to transport, trade facilitation, customs modernisation, and corridor management
- Marketing of the Corridor
- Input into policy development
Investment in infrastructure and improved trade facilitation have contributed to the economic growth of the eastern southern African region, providing a model for regional integration and cross border trade. Increased volumes through the Port of Maputo are expected to reach 20million tons in 2018, compared with the approximately 4,5million tons through the port in 2003. This would not have been possible without the concerted efforts of all stakeholders working together to ensure that the corridor is an efficient, predictable, reliable and viable option for trade.
