The Competitiveness of Ports in Emerging Markets: The Case of Durban, South Africa

How competitive is the port of Durban? What are its main impacts, in terms of economy, environment and traffic? And how well do policies manage to increase local benefits of the port, and mitigate the negative impacts? These are the questions that this publication aims to answer. Its three chapters provide an evaluation of port performance, an analysis of port impacts and an assessment of policies. 

This report is part of the International Transport Forum’s Country-Specific Policy Analysis (CSPA) series. These are topical studies on specific transport policy issues of concern to a country carried out by ITF on request.
