In light of the rapid pace of infrastructure and transport developments across Africa, our Ports, Transport and Logistics (PTL) Sector Group is pleased to present Bowmans’ latest PTL news round-up. Our regular round-ups bring you a selection of pan-African PTL-related stories and keep you up to date regarding developments in the space across Africa.

We draw on a network of multi-disciplinary experts across Africa in fields as diverse as project finance, construction and environmental law, to keep you in the know about developments and thought leadership in the PTL space.

The articles to which we refer readers are, unless stated otherwise, neither written nor edited by ourselves and appear in their original form. Bowmans does not necessarily agree with opinions expressed in those articles. This edition includes news headlines and links to articles from a variety of sources.

Bowmans comment…

Two stories have dominated the headlines in the last three weeks, the “Ever Given” aground in the Suez Canal and the ongoing situation at Palma, Mozambique. While very different in nature, both highlight the important role that ports, shipping and logistics supply chains play in the global economy. In light of the widespread coverage provided by the general media, we have not included any links to these stories in this news roundup.
