Spedag Southern Sudan opens its doors

M+R Spedag Group explored unchartered waters when it opened up its new branch in Juba, Southern Sudan
M+R SPEDAG Group continues to spread its wings. In late, 2007, it explored unchartered waters by venturing into Juba, Southern Sudan and opening the doors of Spedag, Southern Sudan Limited.

The new office is situated on Hai Malakal Road within the WWM Complex, Juba; with representation at Juba International Airport and at the Kaya and Nimule border points. This is part of an ongoing strategy to widen its network across the Africas and improve its service to customers.

This has proven to be a successful venture to say the least. M+R SPEDAG believes that it is entering an exciting phase of growth with what is termed “virgin territory”. At the moment; the fastest growing sectors in Sudan are the provision of basic commodities, construction and renovation. Spedag Southern Sudan plays a pivotal role in these industries.

So far, M+R SPEDAG have handled key projects like the construction and rehabilitation of various government office buildings, electrification of the town of Yei, construction of Southern Sudan Beverages through SAB Miller where the relationship grew to a level that they have a Resident Officer stationed on SAB Miller premises to further ensure client satisfaction. This to mention just a few of the recent logistics activities M+R SPEDAG have been involved in.

Juba, once a garrison cut off from the outside world during two decades of fighting is now booming with business opportunities, but not for the faint-hearted.

Blisteringly hot, Juba is home to a quarter of a million people where arms are commonplace, poverty is endemic and the road network poor. Nearly 24 months after the former rebels of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) signed a peace deal with the Khartoum government; investors now see profit in the South. Despite delays implementing the agreement, many are increasingly confident peace will hold.

With the economy evidently growing, the cost of living is high where accommodation in a tent with basic amenities on average costs $150 a night. This however has not deterred investors whose nationalities are as varied as the trade they are engaged in. Investors hail from Somalia, Ethiopia and Congo, Kenya and predominant are those from Uganda.

M+R SPEDAG GRPOUP anticipates greater heights in Sudan and is proud to be among the pioneers in this area.
