Forum launched to aid Namibia's logistics aspirations 

The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG), in collaboration with South Africa’s Transport Forum, launched the Namibia Logistics Hub Forum in Walvis Bay on Friday, 05 December 2014.

The Logistics Hub Forum is a platform to engage stakeholders within Namibia’s logistics and transport sector, which aims to create awareness with regards to information pertaining to the sector.

As part of the NDP4, it is Namibia’s national goal to become the Logistics and Distribution Hub for Southern Africa. The Logistics Hub Forum is meant to contribute to the conversation and form the type of collaboration that will eventually lead towards achieving this national goal.

The Forum will host monthly discussions covering various topics related to the logistics and transport sector. Credible speakers on transport and logistics related themes of national relevance will be invited to present their perspective on specific disciplines within this sector. The knowledge derived from these sessions will be made freely available to all participants.

Forum discussions are scheduled to take place in different towns in Namibia starting February next year.

The Logistics Hub is a project under the WBCG. The mission of the WBCG is amongst others to facilitate and promote transport and trade along our secure and reliable corridors as well as provide innovative service offerings to our customers.
