Perishables: Creating Africa's future logistics grid

Whether it is tangerines from South Africa or chilli peppers from Ghana, rose stems from Kenya or strawberries from Ethiopia, the transportation of perishable commodities require the most efficient supply chain, not only in terms of technological know-how and temperature control but also in terms of timely delivery, in order to respond rapidly to market needs.

Heralding the growth opportunities in Africa’s perishables trade, the Perishables Logistics Africa conference, organised by the Logistics Update Africa, aims at addressing the latest trends in temperature-controlled logistics, and tackling pressing issues related to trade barriers, infrastructure and distribution involved in the process of perishables transportation.

The Perishables Logistics Africa conference, to be held on October 12 2017 in Nairobi, will open dialogue and facilitate sharing of ideas, knowledge and practical solutions to improve perishables’ supply chain performance
