Logistics expert to raise £2,000 for Africa transport

[ November 21, 2014   //   ]

Hull University Business School logistics expert Professor David Menachof has set himself a target to raise £2,000 for life-saving transport in rural Africa.

Transport solutions have become even more important with the Ebola outbreak of the Ebola virus, says the Professor who has already cycled 340km to Brussels to raise funds for international agency, Transaid.

He added: “The agency works towards developing better transportation in Africa, enabling everyone in the region to benefit from the efficiency that results. For example, healthcare can be delivered where and when it is needed. Goods become available when they once weren’t. It is a long-term vision that is already showing results.”

The Brussels ride was sponsored by international freight and logistics company Uniserve and included riders from Alpine Travel, Argos, Backhouse Jones Solicitors, Cadence Consulting, Clipper Logistics, Collect+, Delin Capital, DHL, GBC Europe, Marks and Spencer, Narrow Aisle, Norbert Dentressangle Logistics, Norbert Dentressangle Transport, PIE Mapping, Prospect Coaches, Transport for London, Traveline Information, The University of Hull and Utrack.

To donate to Transaid visit Transaid’s next event is its Africa Cycle ride in June 2015. Riders will take in the beautiful landscape of Tanzania, cycling 400km between Mount Kilimanjaro and the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater.
