TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS
One more week, one more theme: Transport & Logistics!
Using Logistics to Unlock Africa
Managing the flow of goods from the point of production to consumption is a vital task for any successful economy. The Netherlands as the Gateway to Europe has excellent land, air, and water transport and plays a key role in the transport and logistics corridors of today’s globalized economy. Its major advantage is in the sophistication with which the Dutch logistics service providers combine these forms of transport.
South Africa is the doorway to Africa and an important transportation hub with major shipping lines hugging its coastline. As it has first-class roads, the largest rail network in Africa and eight commercial ports to serve specific hinterlands, it is also seen as the Doorway to Africa, unlocking the rest of the continent.
