At the Africa CEO Forum on 25-26 March 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda, Bolloré Transport & Logistics is announcing the launch of AEROHUB, a new 15,000-m2 platform in Cote d’Ivoire in April 2019. Located near Abidjan international airport and less than 15 km from the port terminal, AEROHUB will foster the development of national and sub-regional logistics activities.
AEROHUB is a new tri-temperature platform – with negative cold (-20°C), positive cold (2°C to 10°C) and ambient temperature – designed for the reception, storage and distribution of a range of goods, including food products (dry, fresh and frozen), pharmaceutical products and high-value-added tech products. The new site will feature a warehouse management system ensuring real-time goods traceability and 24-7 security systems operational throughout the warehouse.
The new AEROHUB platform also embodies the CSR commitments of Bolloré Transport a Logistics in favour of the environment. On opening, AEROHUB will be fully equipped with a low energy consumption (LED) lighting system with movement detectors and a storm-water holding reservoir. Further projects aimed at shrinking the company’s environmental footprint are under review to supplement the systems implemented in the initial phase of the project.
“AEROHUB is a tri-temperature platform bringing together all the expertise of Bolloré Transport & Logistics in logistics hubs. Designed to meet the needs of our customers in Cote d’lvoire, AEROHUB will support the development of the country’s economy by serving as a strategic connection point between sea and air logistics flows. It will also favour inter-African trade – a central aspect in our current strategy – for the enhanced economic integration of Africa.”Thierry Ehrenbogen, Deputy CEO of Bolloré Transport & Logistics.
