Complaint: Some businesses complained that SADC ports are unable to handle containers that exceed 6 metres (20 ft), which limits exporters in implementing the most cost-effective way of transporting their products  
Progress: 1. During the 15th meeting of the SADC Sub - Committee on Trade Facilitation held in May 2017, the Secretariat reported that the Issue had been referred to Directorate of Infrastructure & S for consideration because it is outside the scope of trade.
2. The SADC meeting of NTB-Market Access Task Force held 18-20 March 2020 at SADC HQ Offices, Gaborone observed that the SADC Secretariat has no Senior Programme Officer for Transport nor a Ports Programme Officer to work with the SADC coastal countries to ensure they have facilities to handle 12 foot containers at their ports.
