CAREC Corridor Performance Measurement and Monitoring Annual Report 2016


Since 2009, CAREC Corridor Performance Measurement and Monitoring (CPMM) captures trade facilitation indicators to assess the efficiency of transport and border-crossing points across CAREC corridors. Based on trip samples submitted by participating carrier and forwarder associations from CAREC countries, CPMM analyzes the relative performance of each CAREC corridor using time/cost-distance methodology and identifies the bottlenecks and constraints in the movement of goods across the region. In 2016, customs clearance and loading/unloading fees remain costly for trucks as transloading, customs, and commercial inspections for trains. Declining fuel prices, prompted a price competition between transport operators resulting in lower transport costs.
