Panalpina announced that it has opened two new bases in Morocco and Kenya. The offices, located in Casablanca and Nairobi respectively are expected to support Panalpina’s growth strategy for the region. The company claims that opportunities for growth exist in both economies, predominantly in the energy and infrastructure sectors.
Panalpina plans for the offices in Morocco and Kenya to give customers in these expanding economies a single point of contact, and direct access to the company’s global network and services in air freight, ocean freight and logistics.
“Expanding our global presence is part of Panalpina’s overall strategy, especially in growth economies such as Morocco and Kenya,” said Peter Triebel, Panalpina’s regional Chief Executive Officer for the Middle East, Africa and CIS. “With strong prospects in the two countries, especially in the energy and infrastructure sectors, establishing a formal presence is an important part of our long-term market growth and customer satisfaction objectives.”
Panalpina states that Morocco offers it several business opportunities in key industries such as energy, automotive, aerospace and healthcare. Meanwhile Panalpina sees business opportunities in Kenya in the oil and gas, telecommunications, perishables, chemical and healthcare sectors.
