With the existing transportation connectivity infrastructure and its strategic location at the northern edge of Botswana’s established railway, Francistown has become the country’s logistics hub.
Logistics-related services such as warehousing and distribution, packaging and labelling, etc. have a strong presence in this area and there is plenty room for expansion should new business be introduced here. The Francistown logistics hub is evolving into an e-commerce hub, making use of the already integrated logistics infrastructure.
With its proximity to the Botswana International University of Science and Technology, the SEZ taps into graduates as well as existing workforce, further strengthening and developing the light manufacturing sector as well as the financial technology sector.
