Crossroads goes cross-border
With rising fuel prices, hiccups at border posts and (sometimes) some “scary” roads, cross-border logistics and distribution can be a major source of concern for operators … However, Crossroads – a supply chain and logistics service provider – can offer relief.
Crossroads Namibia has been awarded the tender to transport packed oil and lubrication from Durban to Windhoek, on behalf of Puma Energy South Africa, for a three-year period. The contract is valued at around R3 million.
The company believes that this success will grab the attention of South African businesses looking for a reliable cross-border logistics and distribution service provider. The contract will also create back-loading opportunities for Crossroads from Namibia to South Africa.
“Crossroads has an outstanding reputation and the outcome of its assessment was very positive,” says Sanet Pake, regional supply and logistics manager for Puma Energy. “The company meets and exceeds Puma Energy’s standards and we are comfortable that we are appointing one of the best.”
Crossroads Namibia will be using its current general fleet and will use link and tautliner combination vehicles to transfer the goods.
