Agility park for Accra coming up.

Agility, the Kuwait-based global logistics and logistical infrastructure provider, has broken ground on the construction of a distribution park on a 40 acre site in the Tema Port Free Trade Zone Enclave in Accra, Ghana.

The Agility Distribution Park, one of a series of logistics hubs that Agility is building across the African continent, will provide international standard logistics infrastructure to local, regional and global companies operating in Ghana.

The network of Agility distribution parks being developed across Africa will serve the growing requirements of Agility's existing and new customers as they seek distribution facilities across the continent to meet the demands of burgeoning growth in both FMCG and commercial markets.

Speaking on this latest Agility investment into the region, Geoffrey White, Agility CEO Africa, said, "By providing much needed import and export routes in and out of Africa, Agility distribution parks will help companies operate in Africa with the reliable, modern and secure infrastructure they need to grow their business."

Agility distribution parks focus on providing undisturbed power, IT connectivity and security for tenants, creating an international platform from which companies can efficiently operate their businesses. Offering 2PL, 3PL and 4PL solutions, Agility operates its own warehousing and also designs and builds warehouses on its distribution parks for third parties to specific individual customer specifications.

White went on to add, "Ghana is an attractive location to launch the network of new Agility distribution parks thanks to a long-term stable and transparent government, fast growing GDP and increasing prominence as a regional commercial hub in West Africa. Quality logistics infrastructure is a key driver of new foreign direct investment, stimulating improved trade flows, prosperity and job creation."

The first phase of the park will be complete and operational in the last quarter of 2015, and when fully occupied will include 100,000 sq m of bonded and non-bonded warehouses with ancillary services.
