State Logistics Monopoly Gets New Boss




Roba Megersa, former deputy director general of the Ethiopian Maritime Affairs Authority (EMAA), has been appointed as the new chief executive officer (CEO) of the state-owned Ethiopian Shipping & Logistics Services Enterprise (ESLSE). A marine engineer by training, Roba, was informed of his appointment yesterday, May 9, 2017, through a letter signed by Ahmed Shidie, minister of Transport, and chairman of the board of directors.

Industry operators consider Roba as an experienced person in the maritime sector. He assumed his new role, taking over from Mesfin Tefera, who has been acting head since the departure of Ahmed Tusa, in December 2016.

Ahmed moved to the Revenues Bureau of the Oromia Regional State, after serving the Enterprise for five years. Under his watch, three giant state enterprises in the logistics sector – the Ethiopian Shipping Lines, the Ethiopian Maritime Transit Services, and Ethiopian Dry Ports Enterprise – merged to form the current mammoth state monopoly. The Enterprise has earned 10 billion Br in revenues, in the third quarter of the current fiscal year, moving 3.5 million tonnes of goods.

Yacob Yalla, a former minister of Trade, had a brief stint with the Enterprise before he was moved to head the Ethiopian Horticulture Development Authority.
