IMPERIAL Logistics

Africa in Perspective

The world does not underestimate the opportunity, potential & businesses opportunity in Africa!

  • Africa needs become competitive :

    • Transparent Trade Facilitation Imports / Exports;

      • Improved Trade Procedures

      • Cross border & corridor development

      • Combined commitment by Africa

      • governments

    • Reducing the cost of logistics

      • Conversion of import cargo to the

      • African destination ports

      • Create balanced two directional

      • volume flows

    • Investment in infrastructure

      • Ports

      • Rail

      • Roads

      • ICD

      • IDP

IMPERIAL Logistics

Africa – The Status Quos

  • Red Tape moving goods Regionally, Intra-Africa, Cross Border & Imports / Exports

    • Vastly Duplicative

    • No alignment & co-operation between relevant government & trading agencies

  • Average Custom Transactions:

    • Some 25 different parties and 40 documents

    • A vast amount of data elements:

      • Some 20% repeated numerously

    • Re-Keying of data in excess of 80% - Post to Post

  • Cost of Logistics – Perspective:

    • Globally to “GDP”- 7.5%

    • South Africa to “GDP” - 13.0%

    • Africa to “GDP”- +30%

  • Border Posts – Africa

    • Inefficient

    • Lack of and no regional alignment – information technology as an enabler

    • Border Agency Facilitation

    • Totally duplicative – re-keying of all information

    • Lack of resource i.e. current methodology

    • Road block and “ The key cost driver” to trade facilitation

Africa – Top 80% African Commodities - Export / Import

IMPERIAL Logistics

Africa – Export / Imports

Top ports handle more than a 90% of total volume in SADC region and East coast shares 71% and West coast shares 29% of total volume.

Data Source: Various SADC Port Sites

Africa – Cost of Logistics – Current Status Quos - Inefficiencies

“Logistics” as part of the value chain, the key driver of cost in Africa (+30% of “GDP”) - negatively impacting on economies in the region and certainly socio conditions

  • Assumptions:

    • Simulation - Container Shipment , Main Chinese Port to Lusaka

    • Weighted Average Import Tariffs / Duties – Machinery, Manufactured Goods, Food & Chemicals

    • 28 shipments per annum

    • 40’ TEU’ – 30 ton per container

    • Three destination Ports on weighted average - destination

The Key Challenge

“SME,s” and the informal sector in Africa equate to some 65% of “GDP” creation and (as well now, the formal sector) find it cannot participate in Intra Africa, Regional Trade and Internationally, from a volume perspective and or the lack of formal, supportive and well managed trade and government agencies, as enablers and the catalysts to growth .

  • Simplified trade procedures

    • Expediting the passage and release of product

    • Customs & border post, reformation & modernisation

    • Information Technology & Systems – aligned, as a business enabler in, too & out of Africa

  • Reduce Cost of Logistics

  • Balancing imports to export volumes - two way traffic - Conversion

  • Political & Regulatory Challenges - Integrity & Strength of Institutions

  • Socio Economic Challenges – Growth vs. Infrastructure

  • Social Media & Connectivity - Enabler

  • Banking & Finance Challenges – Growth, Sustainability & Continuity

  • Human Resource Challenges - Foundation

  • Infrastructure Challenges – Road, Rail, Air and the Great Lakes

  • The state of all the above result in a much higher cost of doing business in Africa

  • compared to that of the developed world.

Reward

  • Economic Growth prosperity, success, sustainability and continuity is dependent on

  • development

  • Transformation and empowerment to the future

  • Skills Development

  • Dedicated development interventions and initiatives local employed population

  • Transformation objectives promoted by various skills development initiatives

  • Vehicle to enhanced Socio-economic development

  • Regional Employment Creation

Africa “The Future”: Facilitating Trade through integrity , Simplified Trade Procedure & Framework and Integrated Infrastructure & Information Technology
