ABOUT PUBLICATION

This study investigates the latest trends related to transnational transport corridors in the OIC geography, identifies the common challenges these corridors are facing and proposes recommendations for enhancing effective and efficient transnational transport corridors. The ultimate aim of the study is to raise awareness of transnational transport corridors among the OIC Member States as well as to trigger a serious debate around the issues identified and how to address them.

Within the OIC geography, there are more than 100 transport routes dispersed over Arab, Asia, and Africa regions. It should be noted that not all of these transport routes are transport corridors. Transport corridors should meet the criteria of a multi modal transport corridor that facilitates trade. Transport corridors are denoted as such because, among others, (1) they are subject to an international treaty between countries that call it such, (2) there are common technical and operations standards, (3) the traffic is mostly international, and (4) the operating standards are usually higher than “ordinary” transport routes.
