Bolloré Logistics opens a new office in Madagascar

Posted 13 July 2020 · Add Comment

Bolloré Logistics Madagascar announces the opening of a new office in the Ivato International Airport, Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar.

The facility includes 300m2 of offices and 108m2 of customs warehouses and will provide logistics solutions with a tailor-made and secure service for transport from remote regions of Madagascar to Ivato International Airport, the main airport for air traffic cargo. This perfectly suits the increased volumes in the vanilla market, with new flows created with a door-to-door offer to the USA for vanilla products.

The positioning has also strengthened partnerships with clients and suppliers and facilitated end-to-end solutions for all vanilla exporters. New solutions can also now be offered to the various other markets including the developing textile market.

Benefits of the new premises include fluidity of operations and communication due to the proximity to the airlines, handlers and customs. During the Covid-19 period (since March 2020) the office has facilitated the transfer of flows from destinations not served from Madagascar via the CDG hub.

"The opening of this new, modern and secured office is testament to a skilled team who have succeeded in 3 years, to gain 60% market share of the difficult and demanding vanilla market." said Sébastien Barth, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Madagascar.
