About Us

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

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

  • the Port of Walvis Bay,
  • the Trans Kalahari, 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 connecting Angola
  • 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 with close to 300 million consumers in southern Africa.
