Sergio Jeque, Oceana’s Distribution Operations Director, said: “At Oceana, a safe, secure and efficient distribution network is fundamental to our business model. The Agility warehouses are new and provide the necessary infrastructure meeting international standards. That enables us to offer a consistent, reliable and efficient distribution experience for our customers. Agility Logistics Parks also ensure that strict HSSE standards are followed within the park, something that is very important for Oceana operations. This partnership is one of the key milestones in our supply chain strategy, which will support our business growth.”
The Agility warehouses are located on the Maputo Ring Road, at Chiango area in Marracuene District, and are strategically situated for distribution across the country and to Maputo. The park is within a 25-kilometer radius of the Maputo port and airport, the N4 highway to South Africa, and the capital’s Central Business District.
Agility is funding and developing 300,000 SQM of warehouses on the site, a center of excellence for warehousing in the region, supporting businesses operating in and from Mozambique. The Agility warehouses provide the essential infrastructure required for both multi-national companies and local businesses that need storage, distribution, packaging, processing and light manufacturing space.

We believe that the provision of international-standard warehouses in Africa for storage, distribution and light manufacturing is one of the fundamental building blocks necessary for economic growth.
Agility provides warehouses that are ready to move into, enabling fast deployment, flexibility and reduced capital commitments for our customers. The provision of secure, ready-built, quality, warehouses with consistent power and IT connectivity in the Maputo market is a true enabler of growth and prosperity in Mozambique.”
