PROJECT cargo network, the Project Professionals Group (PPG), and pan-African freight-forwarding group, African Cargo and Logistics Alliance (ACLA), have announced an informal strategic alliance.
“Both organisations have agreed to an alliance that is designed to support new business growth and cross branding and promotion arising from combining a strong regional network throughout Africa with the world’s largest network of international project cargo specialists,” said PPG general manager Kevin Stephens.
“Africa offers business opportunities in many areas of the shipping industry such as project cargo, air freight, wet and dry cargo lifting and port development that can be further developed as a result of this alliance.”
The agreement allows ACLA and PPG members to approach each other for assistance, ACLA members in countries where PPG currently have no representation can join PPG, PPG African members are also invited to join the ACLA network, cross branding and conference networking activities.
