Trade and Transport Corridor Management Toolkit

A trade and transport corridor is a coordinated bundle of transport and logistics infrastructure and services that facilitates trade and transport flows between major centers of economic activity. This Toolkit provides a comprehensive and holistic compilation of approaches and techniques on corridor diagnostics, performance assessment, management, operations improvement, and impact evaluation. It  addresses many of the requests from task managers at international agencies for more holistic advice on corridor management. It brings together and updates existing knowledge and fills in gaps. It can be used for both international and national trade corridors. It also addresses capacity-building needs for corridor management and identifies the legal and trade agreements that determine the trade context within which a corridor functions. The Toolkit is designed for national and international public sector agencies and the private sector actors that have to design, develop, or provide services using a trade and transport corridor approach. It provides tools to answer four main questions: (1) What are the approaches to identifying the main issues and constraints to movement of trade and transport along a corridor? (2) How well is the corridor performing, and where are the weaknesses? (3) What are the options for improving the performance of the corridor? (4) What are the likely impacts of investments or improvements to the corridor? These questions guide the iterative steps in designing and implementing a corridor project.
