JFM Logistics is making significant strides in broadening its presence across Africa through substantial investments in infrastructure.
According to operations director Michael-Anthony Shadiack, the company is exploring a joint venture to establish a massive 50 000-square-metre container depot in Cape Town, complementing its existing three facilities in the Western Cape.
This expansion promises a comprehensive "turnkey" solution, encompassing services such as full and empty container storage, container repairs, reefer-related services, PPECB inspections, washes, pre- trips, and full plug-in.
“We are also set to introduce a consolidation service between the Western and Eastern Cape, further enhancing our reach and services,” said Shadiack.
In addition to pursuing new infrastructure developments, the maintenance and effective control of existing infrastructure are of paramount importance to the company.“
As the African market experiences exponential growth, it has become increasingly imperative to invest in technological advancements and more efficient management systems for our current infrastructure, including roads, ports, and rail networks.”
Shadiack said foreign investments had played a pivotal role in creating new gateways into Africa, thus enhancing accessibility and paving the way for expanded business opportunities on a continental scale.
This strategic approach not only strengthens Africa's position in the global market but also reinforces its potential for sustainable economic growth.
