The origin story of Lyawere Company Ltd. is one that starts over 20 years ago. It was then that a husband and father, together with his family, relocated to a village in Southern Tanzania. In search of a better life, he found that the village was mostly covered in cement dust and basic needs were an hour’s drive away in the nearest town.
The challenge to accessing basic goods and services is what gave birth to Lyawere Company Ltd. that we know today. A name with roots from the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, it refers to the strong warriors of the region who led many battles.
Lyawere began as a service store with all household essentials, and later on, grew to start door-to-door delivery. From there, it grew from a family store business to a formidable enterprise run by a strong team of individuals with various nationalities and backgrounds. Lyawere is now a group of companies headquartered in the city of Dar es Salaam. It now owns more than 50 trucks and continues to serve its mission of meeting the needs of those in remote areas and bringing services right to their doorstep.
Lyawere Company Ltd. is an end-to-end logistics and supply chain company offering customized solutions in haulage and logistics, mining and industrial supplies -MIS, clear and forwarding, and fuel and gas.
At Lyawere, we strive to build long-term, positive business relationships with our clients, keeping their needs at the forefront and consistently moving forward with the newest technologies to meet those needs. The transparent way in which we support our clients at every step of the process allows our clients to receive clear, quick, and flexible solutions – increasing their productivity, reducing their costs, and raising their competitive edge.
Inspired by the origins of our name, we continue to push forward in our industry, striving for excellence and conquering business challenges, testament to our determination and innovation.
Not bad for a family business from a dusty town in the South of Tanzania.
