Bolloré Logistics Attended the ADSS in Seattle

May 13th, 2016

Bolloré Logistics’ Aerospace and Seattle (USA) teams attended the Aerospace and Defense Supplier Summit (A&DSS) from April 20-23, 2016, in Seattle, United States of America.

The A&DSS is a supply chain event that brings together aerospace and defense prime contractors, tier suppliers and contract manufacturers.

Engineering, procurement, supply chain, fabrication, commodity teams, suppliers and service providers meet through pre-arranged one-on-one meetings.

A&DSS is not a traditional exhibition; it takes place every two years and is an exclusive event not open to the public.

Bolloré Logistics was represented by Laurent Chantegros and Mathieu Janssens (Aerospace USA); Jerome Legrand (Aerospace HQ); and Elodie Jollet Gergov (Seattle). This was an excellent opportunity to make new business connections and strengthen existing relationships as they welcomed customers and prospects to their booth.
