DCC to Monitor Corridor Performance
In its quest to improve corridor performance the Dar es Salaam Corridor Committee (DCC) held workshops in Congo DR, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia in an initial step to develop a Corridor Performance Monitoring System (CPMS). The objective of the workshops was to develop specific parameters for monitoring improvements on the corridor that would form the core of CPMS.
The DCC had engaged consultants to develop a policy framework and business model for the institution to better monitor corridor performance. The Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to be used in CPMS include cost, time of transit, border dwell times, security and safety. Information exchange between the DCC Secretariat and the corridor stakeholders will be guided by policies agreed upon by the DCC members.
Delegates to the workshops were drawn from both the public sector represented by ministries of Transport and Trade, Customs Administrations, Police, Road and Rail Authorities among others while the private sector entities included clearing and forwarding agents, drivers, shipping lines and agents as well as transporters and traders.
