Cool Logistics Africa Conference
Cape Town, South Africa - April 16th and 18th
Conference / congress

Delivering Africa’s cold chain potential

Logistics costs in Africa are still far too high. This was the key-finding of the 1st Cool Logistics Africa Conference held in Cape town in April 2012.

As many African economies are developing at an impressive rate, logistical deficiencies are becoming more and more evident.  Even the South African economy has a long way to go in order to avoid being ‘tarred with the same brush of inefficiency’.

The perishable logistics sector needs to be recognised not simply as a source of ‘ongoing problems’, but as a critical benchmark for developing and adding value to the African economies as a whole, whilst catering for the increasingly more sophisticated needs of different communities refusing to accept that ‘one size fits all’.

While the 2nd Cool Logistics Africa Conference will revisit some of the challenges discussed in 2012, the 2013 edition will seek to outline practical solutions against a backcloth of changing global trade patterns, evolving agricultural investment patterns, and focus more on first and last mile distribution.

Combining global and regional logistics expertise with local market needs, including intra-Africa trade development for all types of products that require temperature control, Cool Logistics Africa is the Southern Hemisphere equivalent of the Cool Logistics Global Conference held each year in Europe.
