About the report

The report 'Africa gearing up' was created in close collaboration between PwC and Econometrix, South Africa’s leading independent economic consultants and supported from independent industry experts.

Following a five-pillar model, all countries profiled were analysed in terms of five characteristics and their impact on the transportation and logistics industry:

  1. Demographics and resources;
  2. Economics;
  3. Business environment;
  4. Trade and logistics; and
  5. Transport infrastructure.

All findings were supported by interviews with executives from companies operating in Africa.

Assessments for each pillar were made on the current state and the fiveyear medium-term prospects. These investment assessments were prepared to help potential investors get to know the risks and opportunities of the main transportation and logistics markets in Africa. They should not be regarded as investment recommendations.
