The current landscape in the Zimbabwean transport sector is characterised by high operating costs which in turn increases production costs for industry and commerce, thereby negatively affecting the competitiveness of Zimbabwean-made products in the region.

Summary:

These high transport costs combined with poor accessibility in rural areas also make it difficult for the most vulnerable urban and rural groups including the elderly, women, children and people living with disabilities to access safe and sustainable means of transport. Moreover, the shortage of foreign currency also negatively affects transport operators’ ability to procure spare parts for their vehicles and to ensure a stable/regular supply of fuel for the Zimbabwean fleet of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.
