Unlocking Regional Logistics

Transport efficiency is vital in securing growth across Southern Africa. Cross border logistics is a space many businesses venture into, but few succeed. The sheer vastness or distance between delivery points coupled with many risks results in a tough operating environment. Transporting fuel from one country is no easy feat and yet several logistics companies have shown impressive growth in this sector.

Siyakhulisa Logistics (Siyakhulisa) is one of them. Founded in the late 2000’s Siyakhulisa Logistics has safely transported fuel between South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Malawi for over 14 years.

Unlocking Regional Logistics

South Africa is regarded as the best performer in Africa when it comes to trade facilitation logistics and among the best in terms of transport infrastructure. As other Southern African countries such as Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe rise to prominence as investment destinations, cross-border logistics will play a greater role in getting goods efficiently from A to B.

There is still a long way to go as studies show that transporting goods throughout Southern Africa costs up to 5 times more than transporting goods in the USA. Lack of integration means logistics companies have to contend with smaller markets and plenty of red tape.

The key to unlocking logistics excellence lies in how companies approach the challenges at hand while offering world-class services. Siyakhulisa has, what it believes, found the sweet spot through building closer relationships with key networks and understanding the value in knowing the local landscape.

Potential in Logistics

Logistics infrastructure has the potential to unlock the economic growth value in Southern Africa. It can also provide businesses with great opportunities for growth and the creation of employment. However, the infrastructure required to trigger significant growth is many years away from completion. In the meantime, it is business unusual in the region and for companies like Siyakhulisa. Handling the transportation of fuel is a serious business. It is, therefore, a priority for Siyakhulisa to ensure that a strong value system filters through the staff regardless of locality or circumstance. Tactical problem solving keeps Siyakhulisa’s fleet wheeling across South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Malawi.
