Innovating for smarter and more sustainable supply chain.

Bolloré Logistics’ mission is to support its clients in their international business and to contribute to the growth of their markets by way of high performance solutions implemented by committed and reactive teams.
To federate the innovative ideas generated by our network, we have launched B.Lab, an innovation community within Bolloré Logistics. Its guideline “Digital Innovation Booster” highlights its vocation: to accelerate the digitization of the supply chain and enhance the value proposition to our clients.
The considerable development of data exchanges and their intelligent processing are at the heart of this approach. Among the fields explored, resulting in new uses brought forth by the B.Lab, are: the modeling of dynamic transport plans integrating predictive analysis, the traceability of flows with the Internet of Things, as well as the warehouses automation technologies.
Environmental issues, especially in terms of urban logistics, are also integrated in order to adopt a smart and responsible supply chain.
