  • Source Supply open satellite office for Rwanda & Burundi


    Source Supply has been procuring for and supplying operators in Rwanda & Burundi for over 8 years. With mega power projects in the region scaling up, SSL has this April opened a satellite office in Rwanda to meet the increasing logistics & supply chain demand.

    Dissolved in Lake Kivu's deep waters, at a scale not seen anywhere else on Earth, are billions of cubic meters of methane and carbon dioxide, which result from nearby volcanic activity.


    KivuWatt, a $200 million large-scale gas-to-power facility and the only industrial-scale plant of its kind in the world, was inaugurated on January 1st this year. KivuWatt draws up water from an offshore barge, siphons off the methane, and pipes it to a 26-megawatt power plant on shore.

    This venture will in the coming years be joined by a series of similar ventures driving capacity up to 100 megawatts. Source Supply with a rising demand in logistics and supply chain management has this April opened a satellite office in Rwanda.

  • Source supply joins the fight against Zika


    Cases of the mosquito-borne virus, Zika, have been declared in 21 of the 55 Latin American and Caribbean countries so far. Source Supply with it's fast response procurement network is now joining the fight against the virus.

    Health experts are unsure why the virus, transmitted by the Aedesaegypti mosquito, and first detected in Africa in 1947 but unknown in the Americas until 2015, is spreading so rapidly in Brazil and neighboring countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the virus will spread and possibly reach all territories in the Americas.

    Source Supply is now a supplier of Icaridine, a chemical that is essential ingredient in insect repellents that is recommended by WHO for protection against mosquitoes that carry diseases. Generally, repellents containing a higher percentage of the active ingredient provide longer-lasting protection and Source Supply have Icaridine in its purest form, i.e. 97%.


    Icaridine, the official name approved by the UN health agency, also has a broad effectiveness against various insects.

    Icaridine repels mosquitoes and is effective for up to 14 hours as a lotion and 12 hours as a spray. It is virtually colorless and odorless with a mild citrus scent that fades quickly.

    Unlike other repellents, Icaridine does not pulverize plastics or harm your gear, equipment or clothing. According to the WHO, Icaridine demonstrates excellent repellent properties comparable to, and often superior to other known repellents.

    Toxicity tests done on Icaridine show that it does not carry the same neurotoxicity concerns as other popular repellents making it a great alternative. It is also less likely to cause skin irritation and does not feel greasy to the skin.

    Source Supply: The importance of the human interface in supply chain management

    Bridging the Cultural Gap

    Globalization creates the belief that everything can be had at a click of a button, and that it is possible to operate from any part of the world while relying on the same rules as those used back home.

    Source Supply has operated in over 50 countries and with over 20 years of experience we are well familiarized with each country's way of doing business, their culture, laws, local customs, political and economic environment as well as their national holidays. All these play into how we are able maximize efficiency with regard to our operations.


    Cultural differences can, for example, ​influence perceptions of time, which in turn, can affect the day-to-day procurement and supply chain scheduling as well as delivery deadlines, especially where language barriers or the way in which business is done, are different.

    Being able to break the barriers of culture and language, is key to eliminating future problems that would introduce hidden obstacles and resistance from potential business partners​ and clients.​

    The ability to understand and interact effectively with people from different cultures, plays into how easy or laborious ​y​our operations will go. ​ It also plays into your profits.​​ It is difficult to convince someone from a different culture to do business with you unless they respect you​, and part of the respect comes from ​​your efforts to learn and understand their culture.

    As a client, you want to take advantage and outsource procurement to someone with all these experience and influence and capitalize on their benefits.

    In addition to our ​cultural competence​, ​Source Supply also has accessibility to large global markets, great pricing leverage from handling huge contracts as well as the technological advantage of knowing the latest innovations in the market for your business or company needs.
