Bolloré Transport & Logistics Ivory Coast Logistics Partner of the Francophone Games

April 19th, 2017

Bolloré Transport & Logistics Ivory Coast has been selected to manage logistics operations for the construction of the athletes’ village for the Francophone Games to be held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

The 8th Francophone Games, the largest sporting and cultural event in the French-speaking world will be held from July 21-30, 2017. As the host country for this 8th edition, Ivory Coast and more particularly Abidjan are expecting to welcome more than 4,000 young athletes and artists from the 84 member states and governments of La Francophonie.
These Games are a unique opportunity for French-speaking youth to meet, compete and interact in a spirit of celebration, focused on promoting the cultural diversity of the French language. 

As part of this construction project, Bolloré Transport & Logistics Ivory Coast is entrusted with the customs clearance and on-site delivery of over 1,000 containers by road from the port of Abidjan. The Bolloré Transport & Logistics Ivory Coast teams also provide a value-added service on site by taking care of unloading the containers, delivering equipment right outside the various foundations, and returning empty containers from the future village back to the port of Abidjan. 

Bolloré Transport & Logistics Ivory Coast teams are therefore mobilized throughout the logistics chain from the port of Abidjan to the site, which will be home to the next Francophone Games village.

Finally, all these logistics operations, which comply with the latest QHSE requirements and standards, are monitored and documented by setting KPIs and sharing them regularly with the customer.
