Bolloré Logistics: An expert in industrial projects logistics

Customers and suppliers will have the opportunity to meet Bolloré Logistics Industrial Projects teams coming from Africa, the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe.

This will also be the opportunity to share the latest information on our Group where greater synergies, both commercially and operationally have been established between the regional projects divisions in Europe, Africa, Asia and the United States.

Bolloré Logistics proposes tailor-made solutions in sectors such as oil and gas, petrochemical and chemical, mining, construction and equipment and in various other industries.

At a time of continued turbulence in the oil and gas market, the impact of which can be keenly felt in various project sectors, we believe that now more than ever we need to stay strong and resilient as a group. “We need to remain even closer to our customers in this sector by travelling this difficult path together and looking for project solutions that can mitigate and reduce costs and add efficiency to the overall supply chain” said Philippe Lejeune, Industrial Projects Europe Director.

One area that Bolloré Logistics does foresee as having significant growth in the coming years, especially in the developing world, is the power sector. With this in mind, Bolloré Logistics has created at the start of 2016 a global industry vertical specializing in Energy and Renewables which will look to implement efficient project logistics solutions in industries such as wind, solar, hydro, thermal as well as standard diesel and nonrenewable power.

“This vertical will work closely with all our project divisions worldwide where our footprint and expertise mean that we are able to meet the logistics challenge of energy projects in even the most demanding of locations” added Philippe Lejeune.

Our unique operational solutions meet stringent specifications requested by the major global players and the success of each project is supported, among other things, by this network of experts in Europe as well as all over the Bolloré Logistics network in the world.
