Warehousing: A foundation for economic growth

Warehouses tend to be one of the most ignored elements of infrastructure and logistics, but are a fundamental part of the supply chain.


NIGERIA, BENIN, Togo and Ghana are collectively a close-knit, English-speaking trade block with a population that exceeds 250 million people, 40 percent of which are below 30 years old.

The economic development of this important region in West Africa is being driven by a range of positive macro trends:

  • A renewed impetus in energy sector resources is enabling improved power availability and less dependency on imported energy. Ghana’s oil production is forecast to rise to 500,000 barrels per day by 2030 and the Atuabo Gas Plant is expanding output to 220 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMSCFD) by 2024.

By using the body as a metaphor, we can analogise a warehouse as the heart and inventory as the blood within a business’s supply chain network.

Demand for space has never been stronger
