Bolloré Logistics signs a partnership agreement with Team France Export to support and develop the presence of french SMEs internationally

Puteaux. 26 January 2021

Bolloré Logistics is joining forces with Business France, a founding member of Team France Export, as an expert partner for its Practical Guide to Export Logistics. The common goal is to provide French SMEs and mid-tier enterprises with needs-adapted solutions in logistics flows

The new partnership enhances a relationship initiated in 2010 between Business France and Bolloré Logistics aimed at supporting the international development of SMEs.

Through a practical guide based on concrete accounts from businesses and an analysis of trends and practices in international trade, as well as expert advice, Bolloré Logistics and Team France Export are bringing added value to all companies seeking to expand internationally or raise the professional standards of their export procedures. 

Logistics issues often constitute a major challenge for export SMEs. What transport solutions exist? How to manage and optimise the supply chain? How to choose your forwarding agent? The “Export Notebook” dedicated to logistics provides precise and detailed answers to all these questions to help SMEs and mid-tier enterprises build export logistics strategies.

We are proud to be strengthening the partnership with Team France Export. The partnership is fully consistent with the support policy we already lead with our SME customers, the aim being to foster their international development through adapted, efficient and competitive transport and logistics solutions

Chief Operating Officer Trade at Business France

Logistics plays a decisive role in the success of exports. To succeed, companies need to be meticulously prepared. The ‘Export Notebook’ dedicated to logistics, the result of our partnership with the teams at Bolloré Logistics, brings SMEs and mid-tier enterprises a practical and operational resource for structuring action plans in the long term to develop internationally

Team France Export brings together public players, which support the international development of French businesses, and private players, which provide solutions. To that end, Business France has produced a series of five practical guides on exports, each one covering a key theme in any international development project: Strategy, Financing, Human Resources, Regulation, and Logistics.
