Event Details

Organised by Africast in close collaboration with the Ministry of Transport & Logistics, the Land-Linked Zambia (LLZ©) conference will take place on the 23rd to 24th of March 2023, Lusaka – Zambia and will be held under the theme "Leveraging on the impacts of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) for the African Transport & Logistics Industry".

Ranging from the creation of new trade routes to a growth in the volume of exports which will translate into a faster and less expensive transport system and improved connections between the domestic and international transport and logistics forwarders, the implementation of the AfCFTA will have a large positive impact on the African Transportation and Logistics Industry.

LLZ© attracts regional key players from SADC and in 2023 will focus on getting the best from the AfCFTA agreement while giving transport and logistics professionals access to strategic content, business networking, valuable lead generation, and brand awareness.

The conference will engage all stakeholders involved in the transport & logistics sector on how to provide optimum, effective, and efficient transportation and logistics solutions to improve service delivery to better respond as a sector to the needs of all users of our transport systems whilst championing ethical and sustainable business practices through transparency

  • Carbon

    Since the first civilisations, Africans have travelled spectacular distances to trade and explore. Much has changed since then, but the need to move from place to place has not. As long as Africa’s people are on her roads, we’ll be here to fit the tyres that help them reach their destinations safely.

    Our story started sometime around the end of 2014 when Sumitomo South Africa was expanding its wings in Africa. We started with the distribution of Dunlop & Sumitomo products in Cote d'Ivoire and soon expanded to 13 francophone nations in West Africa. This became the base for our future expansion into other countries in Africa.

    While we were building our business in West Africa, we had another story with total focus on tyre retail unfolding in Zambia. The Carbon story started in Lusaka in 2015 as Auto & Tyre Worldwide Ltd. In 2017, we ventured into Malawi followed by DRC and Mozambique in 2018. Since then we have worked tirelessly to develop our network and retail chain to expand our distribution channels. Currently, we have our presence in all the major markets in West, South & Central Africa with retail presence in seven countries.

    As exclusive distributors of a wide range of premium Dunlop & Sumitomo passenger, 4x4, SUV and truck tyres we drive the world’s fastest developing economies forward. Our well-established and reliable distribution network, enables us to dispatch quality products across the continent while our state-of-the-art fitment centres ensure that your tyres are always precision-fitted by professionals.

    We also offer wheel balancing, wheel alignment and tyre changing services to increase the lifespan of your tyres and keep you safe on the roads. Our Fitment Centres also give easy access to a variety of consumables such as batteries, air-conditioner gas refills, lubricants, auto accessories and other services.

    We’re here to drive Africa forward with innovative, tech-enabled tyre solutions that open new horizons for her people and unlock new possibilities for her businesses. For every delivery, every discovery and every destination – we are here for Africa.
