Roll Group and LASO jointly expand presence in Mozambique
Specialised heavy transportation specialists Roll Group and LASO Transportes have formed a partnership to expand their network in Africa, with a specific focus on Mozambique.
Miguel Matos Pinto, MD of LASO Mozambique, said, “Laso has been present in Mozambique since 2012 and we have constantly expanded our capacity to offer logistics solutions, including transportation and handling of heavy and project cargo. We can now offer customers our experience and long presence in Mozambique, together with the capacity of Roll Group to offer complete factory-to-foundation solutions, even for the biggest modules. Roll’s dock ships and deck carriers, installation equipment and fleet of SPMT’s, as well as their engineering capacity are a great match with Laso’s capabilities.”
Commenting further on the partnership Patrick van der Meide and Harmen Tiddens, Directors of Roll Africa, noted that it expands the company’s network of long-term partnerships on the continent with local players.
“This partnership offers unique value to companies working on projects in Mozambique; we can now provide ‘one-stop-shop’ heavy shipping, transportation and installation solutions. LASO has a solid fleet of transport equipment in the country already at yards in Maputo, Pemba and Palma, run by a capable and experienced staff. The Laso and Roll partnership ensures clients of seamless interfaces in the supply chain and safe and efficient execution of even the largest projects.”
