PIL's Footprint in Africa

PIL has a strong presence in Africa. PIL started to serve Africa in the 1970s using general cargo vessels, and by the early 1990s, PIL upgraded its service to Africa with container vessels. 

Today, PIL’s services cover close to 30 countries in Africa, with focus on East, West and South Africa, and has 13 container liner and feeder services a week out of Africa. This is supported by PIL’s agency network of 23 offices, and four logistics companies covering services such as depot (Egypt), warehousing (Egypt and Tanzania), and trucking (Sudan).

PIL's other initiatives with Africa
Apart from being a member of ASEACC, PIL is also a donor of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) - SBF Centre for African Studies (CAS), jointly established by NTU and Singapore Business Federation (SBF) in 2014. The NTU-SBF CAS is to develop thought leadership and capacity amongst the private sector for doing business in Africa.
