Bolloré Transport & Logistics in Benin organises a seminar with the Benin armed forces to strengthen their collaboration

Puteaux. 07 December 2022

Bolloré Transport & Logistics Benin organised a meeting with the Benin Armed Forces (Forces Armées Béninoises, FAB) on 15 and 16 November 2022 to discuss the various issues related to the safety and security of the logistics activities involved in the western link project along the Cotonou-Niamey corridor.

The meeting was moderated by Johanne Lamotte, Regional Head of Security at Bolloré Transport & Logistics, supported by local QHSE teams, and with the participation of a delegation from the FAB General Staff. Based on the sharing of experiences, it was also an opportunity to reflect together on areas for improvement in order to strengthen their collaboration.
