Presentation of the sector

 

The National Strategy for the Development of Logistical Competitiveness, which is the subject-matter of a 2010-2015 Compact, provides for the reduction of logistical costs by as much as 20-15% of GDP.

The Kingdom’s new logistical strategy, premised on the establishment of some 70 logistical platforms in several cities (covering a total surface area of 2,080 hectares), seeks to speed up economic growth by 0.5 percentile point per year, which accounts for 5 percentile points in the GDP over a ten year period.

Value proposition

  • Aimed to seamlessly and optimally manage the increasing flows of in-bound and out-bound flows of goods, the new logistical strategy is an essential chain link in all sector-based strategy as well as a keystone policy designed to directly serve the interests of economic operators and bolster their competitiveness;
     
  • Through the organization of the transportation and flows of goods around 70 logistical platforms (Multi-flow logistical areas), which are directly connected to harbors, highway and rail infrastructures, close enough to production and consumption sites, the logistical strategy will allow a regulation of the road haulage of goods, within cities, in particular, and alleviate congestion in city centers, by limiting urban flows to low-tonnage supply trucks;
     
  • The new logistical strategy will likewise have a considerable impact on the environment inasmuch as it will curb CO2 gas emissions generated by the transportation of good, contributing thereby to the improvement of the goals set by environmental policies;
     
  • These improvements are chalked to generate a direct economic value-added worth 20 billion Dirhams and overall (direct and indirect) value in the order of 40 billion Dirhams, over the same time-span. Besides, these improvements will contribute to the creation of 36,000 new jobs by 2015 and roughly 100,000 by the time the strategy has been carried out, fifteen (15) years later.


    The means that are made available:
     
  • Overall investment worth 60 billion DH, of which two thirds are pledged by the private sector,
    • Development and operation of an integrated national network consisting of 70 Multi-flow Logistical Areas;
    • Upgrade and inducements fostering the emergence of integrated and high-performance logistical actors;
    • Capacity building and development, through a national training scheme in logistics- related trades (as many as 61,000 people are expected to receive training by 2015);
    • Establishment of a framework for the governance of the sector and adapted regulatory measures.
       

Governance
 

  • Creation of the Moroccan Agency for the Development of Logistics and a Cross-sector Performance Indicator Follow-up and Observatory.
