Kale to unlock Uganda logistics

[ January 11, 2022   //   ]

Kale Logistics Solutions has partnered with Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) to offer a Logistics e-Marketplace. The online portal matches companies looking to ship freight using one or more modes of transport with service providers of suitable capacity. Kale says that trade in landlocked Uganda is concentrated in western and central Corridors and ports in Kenya and Tanzania. The sector is fragmented and charges are high, at 18-20% of total sales cost. There is a need to reduce the monopoly of the neighbouring regions and ensure equal opportunity for everyone in the logistics value chain, says the company. The platform can also connect with third-party systems, Cargo Community Systems and those of airport authority and terminal operators to provide status updates.
