Agility brings world class logistics to Africa

[ January 23, 2015   //   ]

Agility has started building 40-acre distribution park in the Tema Port Free Trade Zone Enclave in Accra, Ghana. The Agility Distribution Park, one of a series of logistics hubs that Agility is building across the African continent, will provide international standard logistics infrastructure to local, regional and global companies operating in Ghana.

Agility CEO Africa Geoffrey White, said: “By providing much needed import and export routes in and out of Africa, Agility Distribution Parks will help companies operate in Africa with the reliable, modern and secure infrastructure they need to grow their business.”

 Agility Distribution Parks offer undisturbed power supplies, IT connections and security for tenants. It operates its own warehousing or designs and builds warehouses on its distribution parks for third parties to specific individual customer specifications.

 White described Ghana as an attractive location to launch the network thanks to its long term stable and transparent Government, fast growing GDP and increasing prominence as a regional commercial hub in West Africa.

The first phase of the park will be complete and operational in the last quarter of 2015, and when fully occupied will include 100,000sq m of bonded and non-bonded warehouses with ancillary services.
