Bolloré Transport & Logistics has inaugurated its new multimodal logistics facility, called Aerohub, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The event was attended by Thierry Ehrenbogen, CEO of Bolloré Logistics.

 

“Featuring latest-generation equipment, Aerohub will receive, store and distribute via a tri-temperature platform (frozen, positive cold, ambient temperature) goods intended for the Côte d’Ivoire and sub-regional market for companies in the mass retail, telecoms, pharmaceutical and catering sectors.

 

“Aerohub is ideally located at the Félix Houphouët Boigny airport and close to the Port of Abidjan, making it a connection point between international sea and air logistics flows as well as final consumers. Over €6 million (or F CFA 4.5 billion) have already been invested to launch the initial phase of the project, out of a total €12 million earmarked in the long term,” Bolloré said in a statement.

 

Bolloré Transport & Logistics also operates the Abidjan Terminal terminal container facility at the Port of Abdijan, and has transport facilities in five other cities across the Côte d’Ivoire.

 

In keeping with the company’s drive for sustainable logistics in West Africa, Aerohub features LED lighting with movement detectors and a storm-water holding reservoir. In the long term the electrical equipment will be powered by solar panels, the company intends.
