Energy and Agriculture Logistics

Unitrans Malawi follows a strong “partnership” approach to deliver tailored end-to-end agricultural solutions by:

  • Bringing innovation and implementing mechanisation to key farming activities;
  • Delivering state of the art tailored solutions to solve production issues unique to each operation;
  • Introducing precision agriculture, artificial intelligence, business analytics and informative-reporting to drive efficiencies and to deliver real-time decision making;
  • Providing access to the largest Africa team of passionate, dedicated and experienced individuals to work with your business and to achieve your goals.

Unitrans promotes key agricultural fleet management strategies such as minimising the harvest-to-milling window for optimal crop freshness, whilst taking care to avoid destructive levels of infield compaction through carefully engineered fleeting. The minimising of mill and factory stops, along with consistent deliveries, are key aspects of our successful logistics operations.

Unitrans Africa Mozambique consists of 5 business units, including 4 agricultural estates across 3 districts of the country, passenger terminals in the Northern Province and a specialized transportation unit in the Maputo province offering services across SADC countries. All of the depots and operations are operated under the highest safety standards and have been accredited under OHSAS 18001, ISO9001 and ISO 14001.
