Tigers Caters to Solar Panel Demands with Added Energy Vertical

Tigers announced the addition of a renewables energy-focused vertical to its South African operations, following the opening of its e-commerce facility in the region. The energy vertical will cater to solar panel imports from China through added customs brokerage, local logistics, and warehouse storage.

“These are exciting times for Tigers as we move into the renewable energy sector, which is a growing market, especially in South Africa,” said Paul Lawrence, Managing Dire

“As with the recently opened Tigers e-commerce facility in South Africa, the renewable energy vertical is in line with our progressive approach to freight forwarding and embracing new markets.”

To further support efforts in the evolving sector in South Africa, Tigers also confirmed partnering with the region’s primary manufacturers, including energy solutions company, Energy Partners. Tigers will oversee the distribution of solar panel imports once shipped to Cape Town and Durban, adding to its extensive logistics portfolio.

“In South Africa, there are frequent power failures, and with such high levels of sunshine in the region it makes sense for people to invest in solar power generation,” continued Lawrence.

“We expect the market for renewable energy to continue to grow in the coming years, and Tigers is ready for the demand.”
