Africa Global Logistics joins the African energy renaissance as AEW 2023’s gold sponsor and the event’s official logistics partner.
African Energy Week (AEW) Conference and Exhibition – Africa’s premier event for the energy sector, scheduled for 16 – 20 October in Cape Town – is pleased to welcome Africa Global Logistics (AGL) AGL as a gold sponsor and official logistics partner.
Efficient logistics services and infrastructure are pivotal components that significantly contribute to advancing sustainable energy initiatives. As Africa makes significant strides in harnessing its entire energy spectrum, including oil, gas, and renewables, to bolster energy security, drive industrialization, and stimulate economic growth, the essential role of modern and innovative logistics operations becomes increasingly evident.
These logistics operations are instrumental in optimizing supply chains, reducing environmental impacts, and ensuring the smooth and efficient operation and monetization of energy projects and resources. In this context, the presence of reliable and well-established logistics service providers like Africa Global Logistics AGL becomes imperative.
AGL’s role as a gold sponsor and the official logistics partner for AEW 2023 underscores the company’s dedication to spearheading the African renaissance. AGL is committed to providing comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for energy project operators and developers, further solidifying its commitment to the continent’s growth and development.
During the event, representatives from AGL will participate in high-level discussions promoting the company’s expertise and operations within the African energy landscape.
For more than a century, AGL has extended its reach across 49 African countries – including some of the continent’s top and emerging energy producers and exporters such as Angola, Tanzania, South Sudan, Nigeria and Cameroon – positioning itself as a key player facilitating the transportation of energy skills, equipment and resources.
The company has actively participated in some of Africa’s most significant and state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure initiatives, including ports, all while championing the cause of sustainability across the continent. In the Ivory Coast, AGL oversees operations at the Port of Abidjan, actively participating in its expansion and modernization.
In Tanzania, the company manages the Malindi port. Across rail and road infrastructure, AGL is deeply engaged in some of Africa’s most significant and vital initiatives that promote economic growth, energy resilience, and sustainable development. In Senegal, the company spearheaded a substantial 20 km road upgrade and plays a pivotal role in logistics operations for the expansive Sabodala Massawa gold project. In Cameroon, AGL operates the Douala-Yaoundé-Douala rail services, connecting the economic hubs of this West African nation. In the renewable energy sector, the firm offers optimized services that drive cost efficiencies and enhance project success.
AGL also makes substantial contributions to the development of Africa’s energy markets and economies, fostering job creation and skills development as part of its commitment to local content initiatives.
Now that Africa is prioritizing the revamp and growth of the energy industry to accelerate socioeconomic developments, AGL’s network, expertise, innovative technologies and commitment to the African market will be crucial for the success of energy projects across the continent. As a gold sponsor and AEW’s official logistics partner, AGL will have access to exclusive networking sessions, deal-signings and project showcases promoting the company’s innovations while strengthening partnerships with industry counterparts.
“AGL has for decades played an instrumental role in expanding Africa’s energy industry. As Africa witnesses an unprecedented growth of its energy sector, efficient, cost effective and modern logistics services and companies such as AGL will be crucial to drive the continent’s energy renaissance and sustainable development agenda,” stated NJ Ayuk, the Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber.
