National logistics infrastructure is under the responsibility of the Sudan Ministry of Transport, Roads and Bridges.
Traditionally Sudan has operated through one entry point, the Port of Sudan. However, corridors are also potentially possible through Ethiopia for both regional procurements and/or consignments coming through Djibouti port.
Common constraints are security concerns and the impassability of roads during the rainy season (from May to October). In most deep field locations, no commercial transporters are available and therefore WFP operates its own fleet of trucks, which is strategically placed in the 3 Darfur areas, El Obeid and Khartoum to ensure a quicker mobilisation of resources and adjustments to operational needs. The fleet can support other organisations on a case by case basis and depending on availability.
