TransEast selects Sap Business One solution to harmonize operations

With the tenth-fastest growing economy in the world this year, Kenya is in the midst of a transformative period of economic growth and advancement.

In fact, according to the latest Harvard Centre for International Development report, three of the ten fastest economies in the world this year are in East Africa.

For one high-growth freight logistics firm, this has created immense opportunities for growth and expansion.

TransEast was founded in the early 90s and is today the largest out-of-gauge carrier in East Africa. The company provides heavy haulage services to markets in Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and employs more than 340 people across its operations. Its fleet consists of 200 out-of-gauge trailers and 150 trucks.

“We were looking to expand our business and differentiate from our competitors using the power of a quality ERP solution,” says Martin Swanepoel, Chief Executive Officer at TransEast. “We chose SAP Business One as it’s by far the most recognised brand of its type in Europe and the US and allows us to sort any issues out with a single phone call to our implementation partners.”
