Dublin, March 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The ‘Transport in Zambia 2022’ report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

Zambia is a landlocked country and depends on a strong and efficient transport system for the smooth transit of exports and imports and the growth of its economy. However, economic conditions and poor maintenance of transport infrastructure mean that this industry faces significant challenges and requires additional investment.

The 923m Kazungula Bridge over the Zambezi River and One Stop Border Post facilities opened on May 10, 2021, with the aim of facilitating the flow of trade and people between Botswana and Zambia. It will also provide alternative trade routes between SADC countries and relieve pressure on the Beitbridge border post between South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Air traffic in Africa fell by 65.2% in 2021 and by 89% in 2020. Although air transport remains relatively low, there has been significant activity in the subsector. Private actors have filled the void left by the national airline which suspended services in 2009. The airline relaunched in December 2021.

During the pandemic, private airlines have converted part of their fleet to carry cargo and bulk to compensate for the drop in passenger numbers. Airport infrastructure has improved in recent years with the aim of connecting different economic areas with increased trade and passenger mobility. All four international airports have received infrastructural upgrades, some of which are still being completed.

The report covers the Zambian transport industry, which includes road, rail, air, sea and pipeline transport systems for passengers, freight, cargo and crude oil. The report includes information on countries, developments, regulations and company actions, as well as factors influencing the industry including pandemic, infrastructure development, economic challenges and fuel costs.
