Mining and Construction
Economic globalisation has resulted in an increasingly high demand for mined resources such as copper, coal and other precious metals.
With the increase in mining, pressure from the public over ecological issues and meeting environmental codes has become a priority. Radical changes have been made in the extraction and reclamation of land in many parts of the world, and as a result of these changes, investment in new technologies, equipment and infrastructure has increased.
Concargo’s ability to partner with these mining houses and mining companies helps to provide the necessary transportation and expertise to keep operations running smoothly and more efficiently than ever before. From cleaner burning earth moving equipment, to water purification and treatment plants, Concargo’s logistics and smoothly executed plans set us apart from the competition.

Printing & Publishing Logistics
Publishing is a dynamic global industry with a unique set of supply chain needs. Companies in the publishing industry must balance speed to market, reduced total landed cost and ensure sufficient and timely availability of inventory in order to meet the ever changing expectations of customers. Trust is a key component in any relationship and in publishing it plays a crucial role. Collaboration across the supply chain has become a strategic imperative for this industry. Retailers, publishers and printers are highly selective and need a partner with a reputation for honesty and integrity with a proven track record.

With South Africa planning a significant increase in its use of nuclear power in the coming years, the transport of nuclear fuel and spent nuclear fuel is going to become a more prominent issue.
"The transport of radioactive materials is regarded as the sensitive spot of the nuclear industry, because transported radioactive materials interact very closely with the public, unlike other nuclear operations, which are conducted behind fences."
Concargo have acquired sufficient knowledge of this sensitive project, and has engaged with the relevant authorities, environmental organisations and other protagonists of discreet loads in order to provide the necessary infrastructure to accomplish a journey from wharf to site under strict protocol and enforced supervision.
Did you know?
A record $100 Billion was invested in renewable energy in 2009 and Africa’s biggest wind farm is currently being established in Kenya.
Some of the African regions are so hot that unless you’re are accustomed to that climate it is not possible for you to survive. Extreme temperatures also generate extreme winds and perhaps this is the reason wind farms have great potential in Africa. Some 365 giant wind turbines will be installed in desert around Lake Turkana in northern Kenya to create the biggest wind farm in Africa. Once completed, tentatively in 2012, the £533m project, backed by the African Development Bank, will have a capacity of 300MW, a quarter of Kenya’s current installed power and one of the highest proportions of wind energy to be fed into a national grid anywhere in the world.
Wind power is produced by using wind generators to harness the kinetic energy of wind. It is gaining worldwide popularity as a large scale energy source, although it still only provides less than one percent of global energy consumption.
As the world searches for alternative methods of generating electricity, wind power has become an effective and increasingly popular choice. Wind energy is plentiful, renewable, clean and reduces greenhouse emissions when it replaces fossil-fuel derived electricity. Globally, wind power generation has increased more than fivefold between 2000 and 2006.
Concargo is proud to play a leading role in the carriage and handling of wind turbine power as it continues to grow in popularity and is embraced by governments and energy companies worldwide. After modest beginnings, wind turbines are now used in over 50 countries and are expected to continue with rapid global expansion in the future.
Concargo and their investment capital strategic partner is gearing up to offer retailers and wholesalers an in-place network of warehousing and distribution centers who need a high-performance but flexible distribution infrastructure.
