Newly-appointed MD of CMA-CGM South Africa, Estève Servajean, is latest confirmed keynote speaker at 3rd Cool Logistics Africa conference this March. He will discuss the challenges to Africa’s perishables trade posed by trade barriers. With citrus shippers facing a possible extended EU ban due to the fungal disease citrus black spot, plus fears by indigenous South African and Ghanaian poultry producers opposing ‘cheap imports’, perishable logistics service providers are seeking methods to avoid getting caught up in the middle of trade disputes. Joining in the debate will be speakers from South Africa’s Agbiz and Transnet National Ports Authority.
