ACL Holdings

About ACL Holdings

Established in 2007 in Zimbabwe and in 2009 in Malawi, it has three subsidiaries, Archive-It Services, Custodial Services and Lacho Freight. ACL Holdings was born out of the potential identified to be a powerhouse in offering an unparalleled professional service in our expert areas of document handling, document storage, document management, warehousing services, freight-forwarding and customs clearing.

Archive-It Services and Lacho Freight had since been operational since 2002 and 2004 respectively, under the directorship of Brighton Matikiti. In 2007 after three years of operation of Custodial Services, Philip Chakawarika came together with Mr. Matikiti to form ACL Holdings. This was based on a mutual interest in storage facilities as well as that this was a growing industry with capacity to go beyond borders in operation. The Zimbabwean branch has made its mark in the market and boasts of over 80 clients for all subsidiaries.

2009 came with great achievements for ACL Holdings given official launch of the ACL Holdings brand and the regional expansion into the Malawi market. This was supported by extensive research, great investment, and a dedicated team effort. Today, the Malawi branch is fully operational and already provides service to many clients for all subsidiaries.

In 2010, ACL Holdings also successfully expanded its operations domestically to the Bulawayo market, which now is also fully operational. As an organisation, ACL Holdings believes in moving forward with excellence, thus all our services are designed to give you the peace of mind to see you continue to grow in your own operations.As your profit margins continue to grow, the operating costs in time inefficiencies, space rental and security, and human and material resources will reduce considerably.
