Portuguese group Rangel improves logistics in Angola

21 May 2014

Portuguese group Rangel has improved its overland links in Angola by launching a twice-weekly route to its Angolan delegation, located in the city of Lobito in Benguela province, said the group’s deputy chairman, Nuno Rangel.

According to the Portuguese press the improvements in the Angolan market include specialised “perishable logistics” services.

Rangel also said that the new twice-weekly link improved current transit times for international orders, which are the responsibility of FedEx, as well as domestic orders.

As an alternative to this route Rangel currently offers a daily air link between Luanda and Catumbela airport, which is also in Benguela province.

Along with its perishable logistics service the company provides an air customs clearance service in Angola.

“We transport products ranging from those of animal to vegetables, and the time that passes from collection of the goods and delivery to the point of sale may range from 24 to 36 hours,” said Rangel.

In 2013, the Rangel group, which has businesses in Portugal, Angola, Mozambique and Brazil, posted turnover of 130 million euros, or growth of 10 percent against 2012. (macauhub/AO/PT)
