By Bolloré Logistics Cameroon

 With a population of over 23.3 million, Cameroon is located in the Gulf of Guinea, along the Atlantic Ocean, and is bordered by Nigeria, Chad, Gabon, the Central African Republic (CAR), Congo Republic and also Equatorial Guinea. Cameroon is endowed with rich natural resources, the country exports bananas, wood, cocoa, rubber and cotton, and imports hydrocarbons, rice, clinker, hardware store and bulk wheat.

 

Cameroon is the largest economy in the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC), a region experiencing an economic crisis triggered by the steep fall in oil prices. Along with its CEMAC partners, Cameroon has had to put fiscal adjustment measures in place to adjust the term of trade shock and restore macro-stability and confidence in its currency. Cameroon's Economic growth is expected to reach 4.3% this year.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics is established in Cameroon since 1959. The company, which counts over 5,000 employees spread across the country in the cities of Duala, Kribi, Yaoundé, Ngaoundéré, Bélabo and Garoua, is now recognized as a one of the major logistics specialist and industrial projects player in all the main activity sectors of the region.
