In Logistics, a vital part of trading, MIG’s logistics subsidiary developed an “Africa Logistics Matrix” for REC Systems with which the leading Solar PV manufacturer distributes their solar merchandise from manufacturing locations overseas across ECOWAS and Africa. They continue to offer services like this to Oil & Marine Authority (OMA), GHACEM, and more.
