Transnova is a leading independent logistics advisory, technology and managed services firm that helps companies identify and unlock the latent value in your supply chain. The company was founded in 2012 by a team of supply chain professionals with over 100 years combined experience in the Southern African supply chain and logistics industry. Transnova is a 51% majority black-owned company with a Level 2 B-BBEE rating. Our head office is located in Johannesburg, South Africa with a regional team that offers extensive on-the-ground experience in sub-Saharan Africa with a footprint in Kenya, Rwanda, DRC, Ethiopia and Tanzania.
As a company that utilises technology to enable our solution and to continue improving on the use of technologies within our clients, we have partnered with global supply chain technology leaders that span from supply chain design and optimisation through to executional and transactional supply chain and logistics platforms. We represent these leading technologies exclusively on the African continent. Where we are unable to utilise global leading technologies as functionality doesn’t exist for local conditions, we have a team that develops bespoke solutions locally and we support and implement all our technology platforms locally.More About Transnova
