NGCL: Logistics Centre

Namibian-German Centre for Logistics

The Namibian German-Centre for Logistics is part auf the African Excellence network that has been established on the African continent since 2008 with funding from the Federal Foreign Office’s Aktion Africa programme – with the goal of supporting research and training capacities at important African higher education institutions. DAAD is responsible for the management and coordination of these projects.

Efficient logistics are pivotal in gaining access to regional and international markets. Both the population and industry depend on goods and commodities being available in sufficient volume and in good time. Logistics, therefore, play a key role in the continuing economic development of southern Africa.

Building a bridge between southern Africa’s coastal region and the inner continental countries, Namibia is ideally placed for addressing logistical questions. However, the logistics industry has far from exhausted its potential and still has much more to offer. The greatest obstacles lie in the lack of logistical knowhow and a shortage of professionals.

The Namibian-German Centre for Logistics (NGCL) was inaugurated in May 2009 specifically to tackle this problem. This centre of excellence aims at training logistics specialists and professionals and offer its expertise for Africa. The centre of excellence provides specialised knowledge, advises both authorities and companies alike, thereby contributing significantly to the region’s economic development. You should also check the website of the NGCL!
