Maritime Authority to Invite Private Multimodal Ops | Interoute | Interoute, 8 Nov 2010 [cached]
A letter of notice signed by Mekonnen Abera, director general of the EMAA, was sent to 15 stakeholders including the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC), Ethiopian Shipping Lines (ESL), and Ethiopian Freight Forwarders and Shipping Agents Association (EFFSAA), on August 9, 2010.
"The establishment of dry ports and their strategic partners, MTOs, is crucial for the multimodal system to work properly," Mekonnen said. Modjo and Semera dry ports have already started operations with ESL as the sole MTO.
One of the reasons for drafting the regulation is to create competition in the market, according to Mekonnen, in which the ESL is operating as a monopoly at the moment. "It invites the private sector to engage in such activities, which, in the end, will be a means to achieve efficiency," Mekonnen said. "The other reason is to have other MTOs fill the gap in the transport of export goods, which ESL currently does not cover as much as imports. The draft is also intended to create a regulatory mechanism for MTOs whose role in the import and export is of great significance as a company has to be creditworthy and knowledgeable to do this job, according to Mekonnen.

"The export sector is determined by on buyers' demand or markets with requirements on how the cargo is to be transported and delivered," Mekonnen Abera, director general of MAA, told participants to illustrate the difficulty of managing the export sector. "MTOs also need to have representatives or agents in every destination country."
The MAA is considering three options to address this issue, before finalizing the draft.
"One is to involve only the local MTOs to act in the market if they are up for the job," Mekonnen told Fortune.
