Most of the roads in the country are in a bad condition, especially during rainy season. This represents some serious risks for damage of trucks. Moreover, the long transit time is another factor discouraging transporters. Bridges are washed away and/or destroyed due to an ongoing armed conflict. Crossing ferries are in a bad condition and/or damaged. Due to a high level of insecurity, MINUSCA escorts are mandatory.

90% of the transporters in CAR have one to three trucks and are usually involved in other businessed such as trading, managing supermarkets warehouses etc. There is a lack of professionalism within the transport network.

The central African region has the worst infrastructure on the African continent. According to a report by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the “region stands out on the continent as one with the least infrastructure network, particularly transport and energy, which impacts negatively on production capacities and regional trade as well as social conditions and welfare.”
