This road freight shipment was moved from South Africa to Angola via reefer trucks
Afrigo Global Logistics, Conqueror member in Cape Town, South Africa, moved perishable cargo from Cape Town to Luanda, Angola, over the extended lockdown period. They made use of 15 meter reefer trucks able to load up to 30 pallets each. The weight of the cargo moved over this period exceeded 2.6 million Kg. It took an average of 15 days to complete one cycle per truck over a distance of 7700 km. As one of the leading independent freight forwarders in Cape Town, they have vast experience in perishable logistics.
These shipments were complicated, since they had to deal with movement restrictions due to closed borders. As stated by Karel-Jan Nothnagel, the Managing Member of Afrigo Global, “In Africa, delivery takes time and one has to plan for every delay. Additionally, your staff needs to have patience and understand the importance of timely delivery of the goods. The bad road condition, the volume and time-sensitive nature of the shipment and the long distance were indeed challenging. Nevertheless, our fleet traveled 745,000 Km and delivered the cargo right on time.”
Congratulations to Afrigo Global Logistics and all the best for their future projects!
