Geodis opens in Uganda

Geodis has opened an office in Kampala, Uganda that will initially cater to the surge in industrial projects currently taking place in the East Africa region.

The Uganda office will also support a large-scale oil and gas project in the Lake Albert area, as well as manage the transport of supplies for the associated infrastructure development.

"Aside from oil and gas, the region demonstrates potential across a variety of industrial sectors including, power, renewable energy and transport infrastructure," said Philip Somers, senior vice president of industrial projects at Geodis.

"We will expand as we grow our share of participation in the various projects in the region. This has been a proven model for us in other parts of Africa, where some of our offices have grown to over 300 people. As a growth partner for our clients, we are committed to supporting them in their development. We look forward to serving both existing and new clients in Uganda - as well as in Kenya and Tanzania - in the years to come."

According to Geodis, Uganda's GDP is projected to increase by almost 6 percent in 2018 which will translate into potential activity in the field of logistics.

Both Kenya and Tanzania are also ripe for expansion as they plan extensive development projects for their own infrastructure, power supply and renewable energy provision, said Geodis.
