Are you looking for a partner to help you enter, or expand your market, in the fast-growing Zambian economy?
Our Air and Sea business is building on its strong presence in the mining sector and has added a compelling mix of automotive, pharmaceuticals, hi-tech, agriculture and retail.
The Zambian economy is expected to grow at a healthy 5% in 2018, climbing steadily from 3,4% in 2016, and we are taking advantage of the upturn to consolidate our position as the country’s largest logistics provider.
While Zambia is a land locked country bordering seven neighbours, it has a significant inflow of ocean freight containers through the four major corridors, namely Durban (South Africa), Walvis Bay (Namibia), Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) and Beira (Mozambique).
Our services range from Freight Forwarding and warehousing to customs clearing, distribution as well as more demanding services such as project management and onsite implant co-ordination.
We have been in Zambia for over 30 years and operate from offices in Lusaka, Kitwe, Livingstone, Chirundu, Chipata and Ndolo.
We have a long-lasting partnership with Mopani Copper Mines and have concluded a number of multi-million dollar projects. They include a Smelter shutdown and refurbishment (2012); a new acid plant (2013-4); Synclinorium Shaft – new shaft (2013-16); Mindola Deep Shaft – new shaft (2014-17); Mufulira Deep – new shaft (2015-17); Smelter shutdown / refurbishment (2017); Concentrator/Synclinorium stock pile (2017-18).
In the past we helped build (from a forwarding and logistics aspect) two major mines, Lumwana Barrick and Lubambe Mine. Zesco (Zambia National power supplier) and MTN are other major customers.
Looking ahead, there are two major projects in the pipeline – one for Mopani Copper Mines, a Concentrator/Synclinorium stock pile, another for Huawei, who are erecting more than 300 cellphone towers. And we are planning to start a courier division and expand our warehouse management and distribution capabilities.
Zambia’s major trading partners are South Africa, China and India, and the economy is dependent on copper and agricultural product exports.
The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) is headquartered in Lusaka, and Zambia is a member of The Southern African Development Community (SADC)
The factors which underpin our success in Zambia? teamwork, a passion for customer service and a small, flexible team of around 30 employees.
