Project cargo 3PL specialists, the Project Professionals Group, has strengthened its reach into the heart of Africa with the appointment of a new member.

PPG general manager Kevin Stephens said Afriglobe Shipping Lines had been appointed to represent the network in Benin, Camaroon, Chad and Niger.

Mr. Stephens said Afriglobe Shipping Lines was highly recommended by the African Cargo and Logistics Alliance (ACLA) that has members in 53 African countries.

The PPG has a strategic alliance with ACLA and Mr. Stephens will attend the next ACLA annual conference to be held in Sao Tome-Principe in February 2010.

‘Afriglobe has a successful track record in the transportation of project cargo and their appointment offers the PPG network a very strong presence in regions that it had previously not been able to utilize on behalf of our clients,’ Mr. Stephens said.
