Among the African countries, South Africa and Egypt are in top of the list on logistics performance. South Africa has the large economy in Africa and is the most developed in sub-Saharan Africa. As an important gateway to the African continent, it stands to benefit vastly from the extraordinary economic growth in neighbouring countries.
Egypt’s geographical location lends an important aspect to the maritime transport sector as it overlooks both the Mediterranean and Red Seas, linked by the Suez Canal. The Suez Canal will remain a huge asset as it is the main trade route between Europe and Asia.
