Egypt to have 12 logistics centres in Africa in 3 years: Expolink

The Egyptian Exporters Association – Expolink (EEA) is planning to establish 12 logistics centres in a number of African nations in three years, its chairman Khaled El Mikati said Monday.

The launch of the centres will be in cooperation with the Egyptian Commercial Representation.

Expolink (EEA) is a non for profit private sector association, founded in 1997 by the Egyptian private sector.

The first logistics centre will be established in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi in the first quarter of 2016, El Mikati added, saying the EEA is set to visit the country by end of current January to discuss final details of the project.

The planned centres will give the Egyptian goods a permanent presence in the African markets, and will eventually boost the Egyptian exports to those countries, the Egyptian official said.
