Our Footprint in Zambia

Agriculture Logistics Services in Zambia.

Unitrans Africa Zambia is an exciting new team focussed on the Agriculture Sector. It provides Land Preparation services, in Mazabuka Zambia and has been ongoing for several years. It performs all types of operations ranging from primary tillage to GPS land forming.

Unitrans Africa Zambia delivers tailored end-to-end agricultural solutions by:

Unitrans Africa Zambia also provides Cane Loading and Haulage services on the Nakambala Sugar Estate and surrounding farms. We promote efficient 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 agricultural logistics operations. Unitrans Africa Zambia has signed a long term sugar cane haulage contract with Zambia Sugar and has deployed latest technology assets which maximize payloads, increase efficiencies and reduce operating costs.

Unitrans Africa’s Zambia operations have been ongoing since 2015 when it entered the Zambia Petrochemical and Fuel Transportation and Logistics sector in line with the services it offers in neighbouring SADC countries. The Unitrans Africa Zambia Logistic office managed the import and distribution of fuel to its customers by implementing the highest SHEQ (Safety Health Environment and Quality) standards, putting the supply chain services apart from its competition. During this time Unitrans Africa Zambia’s fleet moved over 1 million litres of fuel to various operations in Zambia.

Ensuring quality service

In light of legislative and operational considerations, Unitrans Africa Zambia gradually unbundled its fuel service offering and expanded into other growth opportunities. During 2017 Unitrans Africa Zambia expanded its services footprint to include bespoke Agricultural Land Preparation Services at the Nakambala Estate. This operation has gradually grown to include additional Agricultural Logistic Services, operations which commenced during 2020. In line with the overall Unitrans Africa’s Group Services, Unitrans Africa Zambia looks to expand its services to the Bulk Handling and Mining Operations.
