Media Release: Bolloré Logistics in East Africa

 Bollore logistics RVBBolloré Logistics, leading integrated logistics network in East Africa.

As a leading logistics services provider in Africa, Bolloré Logistics, has developed a strong network in several East African countries. Due to an increase demand for consumer goods & services such as consumer retail, telecoms and soft commodities, many multinationals firms decided to entrust their supply chain management to Bolloré Logistics teams in East Africa acting as a trade facilitator in the region.

Bolloré Logistics is the leading logistics services provider in Africa with a presence in 46 countries. In addition to its historical presence in West Africa, Bolloré Logistics has developed a strong network in several East African countries (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique).

Although some countries meet huge difficulties to access to vital resources, the region is booming.

Ethiopia is today the second largest African country in terms of population with more than 92M inhabitants, representing a future huge economic pool. The biggest impacts of those phenomena result in an increase demand for consumer goods and services, such as consumer retail, telecommunications, entertainment, financial services and healthcare.
