Market research shows that the traditional static outdoor advertising has limited reach in that it is restricted to certain areas by current legislation. Mobile outdoor on the other hand has the ability to be projected into virtually any urban, residential or rural area.
City Logistics presents this opportunity to advertise on our vehicles, with over nine million km’s per year on 300 different vehicle combinations across the entire Southern African region. This extensive footprint gives our clients the unique opportunity to increase their brand awareness and market penetration by utilising this branding medium.
