Extracted from Analytiqa's Africa Logistics 2012 report, this country insight has been published due to demand from professionals in the supply chain industry for up to date, reliable and comprehensive market statistics.

In contract logistics markets, the leading African countries offer many undeniable opportunities for 3PLs looking for new sources of growth and revenue. The business environment in many countries is challenging, but an expanding middle class is driving growth in consumer markets and production in manufacturing and industry.

It is imperative that any strategy for the region is based on an in-depth understanding of individual markets and their dynamics. In many countries contract logistics is in the infant stages of development and whilst forecast growth rates are high, these originate from a relatively low base. Lower levels of outsourcing may indicate opportunities for growth, but at the same time point to cultural and operational challenges.

The report has has been published due to demand from professionals in the supply chain industry for reliable and comprehensive market statistics. This report provides an analysis of past market performance along with forecast growth trends for the major logistics markets across the region.
