On September 15, 2015, SDV represented by Philippe LORTAL – CEO Middle East region and TOTAL Marketing & Services Middle East (TMME) represented by David KALIFE – MD of Total Marketing Middle East signed a three-year logistics agreement.
The scope of work of SDV is to ensure the unloading, handling and storage in the Warehouse of the TOTAL lubricants and greases as well as inventory management and value added services.
SDV receives finished products directly from TOTAL production facility located about 20kms away from our storage warehouse up to 19 x 40’ trailers of drums (oil or grease), pails & cartons to be stored and then distributed in export market. In total, a 12,500 sqm facility and 17,000 pallets positions will be dedicated to TOTAL.
A special attention is given to HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment) controls on vehicle drivers as well as warehouse operations due to the hazardous nature & weight of the goods.
One of the next steps of this collaboration will be the customization of Square, our SDV Warehouse Management System to TOTAL’s processes.
This new commercial success reinforces the current warehousing operations of our Group for TOTAL Marketing & Services division such as Senegal since 2010 with an export Hub in Dakar of 24,446 sqm, and Cameroon in 2012 with 5,000 sqm.
