This has been a proven model for us in other parts of Africa, where some of our offices have grown to over 300 people. As a growth partner for our clients, we are committed to supporting them in their development. We look forward to serving both existing and new clients in Uganda – as well as in Kenya and Tanzania – in the years to come.”According to Geodis, Uganda’s GDP is projected to increase by almost 6 percent in 2018 which will translate into potential activity in the field of logistics.Both Kenya and Tanzania are also ripe for expansion as they plan extensive development projects for their own infrastructure, power supply and renewable energy provision, said Geodis. www.geodis.comlast_img read more
