The Diversified Logistics segment enjoyed operating profit growth of 14%. This was largely due to the consolidation and rationalisation of Unitrans Supply Chain Solutions, which allowed for optimisation of operating efficiencies and provided a platform for reallocation of capital. Growth was particularly good in the food, petrochemical and infrastructure sectors, thanks to a strong focus on cost containment and fleet utilisation. Operating profit in the Diversified Industrial segment grew by 24%, driven by strong performances by the timber, chemical and automotive components divisions. In addition to reinforcing the existing strength of its businesses, KAP is looking to buy strongly into the rest of Africa.
