Tigers South Africa has expanded its services by launching a renewable energy vertical to handle the import of solar panels from China.

Tigers is working with some of the major solar panel manufacturers in the industry, as well as Energy Partners, a leading energy solutions provider in South Africa.

“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 Director, Tigers South Africa.

“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.”

Tigers is providing Customs brokerage, local logistics and warehouse storage to a meet growing demand for solar panels in South Africa.
