SEKO, a global provider of supply chain solutions, including transportation, logistics and technology solutions, has opened offices in Uganda and Ethiopia.

This latest expansion of its global network is driven by the strong energy, mining and technology industry sectors in Africa, which are core vertical markets for SEKO Logistics, according to the company.

The new SEKO offices in East Africa offer air and ocean forwarding, project cargo, ground transportation, warehousing, fulfillment and customizable IT solutions. SEKO Uganda and SEKO Ethiopia are deploying SEKO’s global, web-based operating system to provide customers with seamless visibility to their supply chains.

The new locations have been launched by experienced logistics professional Hubert Vermaak, regional director East Africa, SEKO Logistics, who has more than 15-years’ experience working for global companies in East Africa.

Bob van der Putten, managing director EMEA Region for SEKO Global Logistics, said: “SEKO has initiated an aggressive expansion strategy in Africa. The addition of offices in Uganda and Ethiopia adds to our existing coverage in Libya, Egypt and South Africa. In addition, SEKO will soon be opening offices in Morocco, Tunisia, Kenya, Tanzania, Djibouti and Zambia, making us one of only a few global players with coverage in many of these markets.”
