Distribution in Zambia
Our main Zambian depot is situated in Chingola, which is an ideal location for distribution within the Copperbelt. Once a truck arrives with a consolidated load, we will receive the goods and offload it into our on-site warehouse. From this point, the consignment will be sorted and dispatched for delivery to the various clients. We have a number of vehicles in our fleet to cater for individual needs of the customer when making deliveries. Similarly, collections may be arranged when goods are being sent out of Zambia. We have supporting depots in Lusaka and Livingstone to assist with similar services.
We also offer a full 3PL solution ex our Chingola facility. For example, recently we have been contracted by one of our clients to manage and oversee their transport solution - the client supplies mining equipment to various mines and have decided to outsource the entire logistics function from staging to delivery. This is where we come into play, as we run, organize and manage their logistical needs on a daily basis. We operate a dedicated fleet of vehicles that are used to deliver and collect goods on a “Just in Time” basis. These vehicles mainly operate in the Copperbelt area, but travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Lusaka when it is required. Furthermore, we offer our client the use of the other vehicles in our fleet at reduced rates for any additional transport requirements that they may have from time to time.
Our staff in Chingola are young and energetic and work well together as a team.
