This strategic expansion is aimed at further enhancing the company’s presence in southern Africa but with a strengthened focus on the corridors via, Durban, Maputo, Beira, and Dar Es Salaam.
“Our newly appointed Business Development Manager for South Africa, Saulo Borges, aged 38, is a highly experienced professional in the field of Transportation and Logistics. Saulo boasts over 17 years of expertise in logistics within southern Africa, and recently, Mozambique,” the company said in a statement.
Borges will focus on clients in Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi due to his extensive background and knowledge. He has extensive knowledge of Mozambique and cargo going via Beira Corridor due to his experience as General Manager for a top 3 freight forwarder in Mozambique.
“We are delighted to welcome Saulo onboard. He is very experienced within our area of focus – inbound cargo via Durban, Maputo, Beira and Dar Es Salaam. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Saulo in the past and I know what he stands for.
