This forces the country to import goods from our neighbouring countries. Botswana’s main center of trade is located on the eastern part of the country while the rest of the country is mainly covered by the Kalahari Desert and Okavango Delta making it very difficult to meets its agricultural needs and furthermore as a developing country relying mainly on importing most of its raw materials for different industrial sectors of the country, thus the need for De Vre Trans to provide the service of transporting the needed resources between Botswana and its suppliers.
