DHL to expand presence in Africa's oil and energy sector



    DHL Global Forwarding plans to open over the next 12 months four oil and energy centres that will target Africa's logistics industry in Cape Town, Luanda Accrac and Mombasa. The move comes amid forecasts that African oil production capacity will reach 7.4 million barrels a day by 2014, making Africa a key investment destination amid growing global demand for energy from the continent.
    By the second quarter of 2012, DHL said teams employed at these centres will be able to consult with clients on the design of the supply chain and implement logistics solutions that will be able to overcome challenges such as the continent's diverse customs environments and remote production locations.
