Bolloré Transport & Logistics Cote d’Ivoire will open a new logistics facility close to Abidjan airport.

The CFA3.4bn centre will cover a total area of 9,000 sq m and is being developed to support cargo import and exports from the country.

The centre is due to open in September and will include a 7,500 sq m operating area and 1,500 sq m of office space.

It will also contain a 3,500 sq m warehouse with equipment such as a weighbridge, a dock leveller, a palletisation system and a cold room.

Joël Hounsinou, managing director of Bolloré Transport & Logistics Côte d’Ivoire, said: “This investment is part of the structuring projects to which we have been committed for several years, aiming at modernising the logistics infrastructure in Côte d’Ivoire.

“Two years on from the inauguration of Aérohub, we are preparing to bring a modern infrastructure into operation that will enable us to meet the growing needs of our customers and to strengthen our role as a regional logistics hub.”

Further developments are planned to facilitate packaging of pharmaceutical products and provide value-added storage for all types of freight, including perishable goods destined for the Ivorian market or European countries.
