Agility builds logistics warehouses facility in Mozambique

Moz 2Global logistics company Agility is building a pan-African network of international standard warehouse parks with an aim to do business easier and less risky as well as attracts new multinational companies to invest in Mozambique

Deanne De Vries, senior vice-president for Agility Africa, said, “For investors looking to position themselves for growth in one of the continent’s biggest future economies, Mozambique provides a strategic long-term growth opportunity with exceptional opportunities in hubs from Maputo to Pemba, Tete, Nampula and more.”

Her comments come ahead of the second annual bilingual MozamReal Property Forum taking place on 5 June in Maputo, where De Vries will present a detailed view, and site tour, of the warehousing giant’s first phase of 32,000 sq m of A-grade warehousing space suitable for storage, distribution, packaging, processing and light industrial work.

With conservative growth forecasts predicting a doubling of Mozambique’s GDP in the next four to five years, the global logistics giant’s future growth strategy is increasingly geared towards the continent and in lynchpin markets such as Mozambique.

De Vries explained, “E-commerce can require four times more warehousing in markets than traditional logistics pathways.”

Owning more than 2.2mn sq m of logistics space worldwide and with over 60,000 global clients, Agility’s warehouse park on the Maputo Ring Road is set to transform and improve the ease of doing business in the economy.

She further added, “Our support programme for local Mozambican SME companies enables them to lease our international standard warehouse facilities by paying a three-month security deposit.”
