DB Schenker Logistics has opened an office in Namibia.
For the past five years, the third-party logistics provider relied on partner Desert Logistics to oversee its services in this market. DB Schenker decided to acquire 100 percent ownership of Desert Logistics. The acquisition was approved by the Namibia Competitions Commission.
Schenker Namibia (Pty) Ltd. is now representing the global DB Schenker in the African country. “We plan to grow and expand our market share,” said Fritz Kaufmann, managing director of the Namibia operation.
The new DB Schenker subsidiary is based in Windhoek and has an office in Walvis Bay.
