TR Cutler Examines How Uganda is Solving the Global Supply Chain and Labor Constraints in LogisticsMatter

Manufacturing journalist TR Cutler recently interviewed Emmanuel Obua of Apogee Logistics in Uganda. Apogee Logistics Limited was incorporated in 2016, providing integrated end-to-end logistics, clearing, and forwarding services in East Africa and beyond. In 2019, the company became fully licensed under Uganda Revenue Authority Customs Department. Cutler’s interview with Obua can be read in the recent issue of LogisticsMatter magazine here.

Obua noted, “With the great resignation in the USA, people don’t want to work despite millions of job openings and limited available real estate for logistics, warehousing, distribution, and manufacturing facilities. Uganda has a significant workforce under 30 years of age who will be thrilled to make $1000 per month. Land for establishing logistics operations are at nearly 100% of capacity in the United States. Land is plentiful within a short distance of Entebbe airport in Uganda. With Uganda operating as a free market with few price controls, there are no restrictions on the sale and distribution of products once they are allowed in the country. Foreign companies (including US-based firms) are partnering with Ugandan businesses to manufacturer, package, and to distribute products globally.”

“Apogee Logistics has partners in Mombasa to help in port clearance of cargo from the vessels and positioning of trucks for transportation to inland container deports (ICDs). Partners assist in clearing cargo from the vessel (at Mombasa), positioning trucks and cargo transportation. Additional logistics assistance includes clearance at ICDs in Kampala or Malaba (for tax payments and unit verification/cargo verification), depending on the destination as well as delivering finished goods to clients. When the cargo is delivered to clients, arrangements are made for the return of containers,” added Obua.

LogisticsMatter is an online supply chain and logistics news platform exploring logistics trends and developments. LogisticsMatter is one of the world’s biggest independent logistics blogs.
