Bolloré Transport & Logistics strengthens its presence in East Africa

Puteaux. 16 July 2018

Bolloré Transport & Logistics has recently concluded two new agency agreements with Banadir Gate, a logistics company in Somalia, and Ewan Technology Solutions, a transport corporation based in Eritrea. By combining its know-how with the expertise of local logistics suppliers, Bolloré Transport & Logistics plans to expand its offering, increase the quality of its services and create new business opportunities.

Linked by a long-standing partnership, Bolloré Transport & Logistics and Banadir Gate signed in June 2018 an exclusive agency agreement in order to strengthen their collaboration in Somalia. Both companies have already successfully completed several projects on behalf of large international institutions. Today, they continue to provide transport services for several NGOs in the country including foodstuffs and pharmaceutical materials.

In Eritrea, Bolloré Transport & Logistics also signed with Ewan Technology Solutions, an exclusive agent of the Group since May 2018, a new agreement. Both companies, which had already worked together on transporting medical supplies from the United States, are currently working on other projects and intend to investigate new opportunities by building on the success of their operations.
