Abstract: The lack of adequate and modern transport infrastructures makes the costof transport in Africa higher than the rest of the world. Most of the transportinfrastructures that exist were constructed during the colonial era which makesinter-regional connectivity difficult. The African Union in collaboration withother organization has committed to bridge the transport gap in Africa but still,face some challenges. This paper discusses the main issues that contribute for theweak nature of transportation in Sub-Saharan Africa with regards to the maintransport modes and seeks to establish the possibility of sustainableintermodal transport through the integration of the different transport modes.Some policy reforms and other bilateral agreements such as deregulating thetransport markets in West and Central Africa have been suggested to facilitate thedevelopment of an effective and efficient transport network in the Sub-SaharanAfrican region.
