Freight Forwarding Agents
During the 1990’s the agricultural sector broke into the International Market by meeting all the EU standards. As a result horticulture, dairy and numerous other commodities were traded overseas. This meant a need for a wide range of clearing agents to meet the demand. Today a number of these companies are operating at less than optimum capacity but still have the skills to cater for exporters.

The situation is very different in different parts of the country. In Harare, in the centre, where the office is located, power cuts are less frequent than in the rest of the city, where electricity is not available most of the day. In Masvingo power cuts happen every day, in Beitbridge not as much. Finally, in Mutare the warehouse is located next to the electricity service provider, therefore power is stable. Installing generators with sufficient capacity should be a priority for every WFP office and warehouse. WFP should also ensure that its partners have generators as well as fuels supplies, in order to ensure continuity of work and data transmission. ZESA regards Hospitals, Sanitary facilities, Security, Border Posts, CBD and Airports priority in times of shortage. Although not adhered to this is generally the norm in cities and areas of high importance.
