We are well placed to remove inefficiencies in the supply chain and deliver great value for all cargo owners
With global manufacturers looking to get closer to their customers, improve logistics and expand into new markets, we create production and distribution centres in strategically attractive locations close to sea, air, road and rail connections.
Our multi-modal approach boosts cargo volumes while reducing transit times. We focus on developing projects in diverse locations, creating jobs for local people and a positive ripple effect for local economies – encouraging regional investors to follow suit. We also own, operate and invest in logistics services that move cargo and keep trade flowing.
In recent years, we have extended our core operations to offer end-to-end capability and have built up our logistics capability mainly through acquisitions.
In 2021, we focused on consolidating and integrating these acquisitions while expanding our digital presence to connect it to our physical infrastructure. We provide integrated supply chain solutions that are efficient and transparent. Feedback from our customers has been encouraging.
The acquisition of syncreon and Imperial Logistics adds a significant strategic value to our offerings owing to both the companies’ logistics capabilities and reach.
Overall, we are well placed to remove inefficiencies in the supply chain and deliver great value for all cargo owners. Our growing revenue mix directly with cargo owners demonstrates that our strategy is gaining traction.
