EBA Transport

Quantifying laws and regulations for better transport services

EBA transport indicators measure laws and regulations that affect the provision of commercial road transport services. The indicators address factors that could potentially benefit farmers and agribusinesses through more competitive and better regulated services that enable the transport of agricultural products to the market.

The team is currently collecting updated and expanded information for 80 countries around the world and will publish this data in 2019. For more information or to share your expertise, contact Nisha Arekapudi (Team Leader), at ebatransport@worldbankgroup.org.
