About Us

The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) is a public-private partnership established in 2000 to promote the utilisation of the Walvis Bay Corridors to the Port of Walvis Bay and Lüderitz in the Republic of Namibia.

The corridors, serving the two ports, is a network of transport routes from the neighbouring SADC countries of Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The corridors include:

  • the Port of Walvis Bay and Lüderitz,
  • the Trans Kalahari corridor connecting Botswana and South Africa,
  • the Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lubumbashi development corridor (previously known as the Trans-Caprivi corridor) connecting Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and the Democratic Republic of Congo,
  • the Trans-Cunene corridor connecting Angola, and
  • the Trans-Oranje corridor connecting South Africa.

 

The Walvis Bay Corridors are positioned to give the country a competitive edge as a transport hub for all regional and international trade between the Southern African Development Community (SADC), Europe, the America’s and the rest of the world. Through our world-class commercial port at Walvis Bay, international shipping connection and the added advantage of being a gateway to the west coast of Africa, Namibia plays an increasingly important role in trade, linking the global economic centres to over 330 million consumers in southern Africa.
