African trade is booming and more and more shipping lines find their way to the African ports. This has led to huge expansion projects and plans to build new terminals all over the continent. In order to unlock the African hinterland, ports and rail authorities are working together to set up new logistics infrastructure where investment figures of single projects in the sector go up to 10 billion USD.
This event will bring together government officials, port and transport authorities, associations, logistics providers, investors, consultants and industry experts to discuss the current status and future direction of the ports and railway industry in Africa.
“I am so proud to be part of this congress where different leaders came together to share ideas and solutions for a better Africa.”

“This event is enriching because it’s showing how different regions of Africa are facing the same challenges, constraints and opportunities. Ports development remains extremely linked with the availability of efficient transportation ways and good management of cross borders/corridors trade traffic.”

“Thank you for the event, I was happy to be a part of it. The sharing of the knowledge was good. The number of delegates was right for me as it was some enough to participate and network successfully. Let’s hope that the private sector will push forward to introduce chances.”
