by Bolloré Logistics Chile

 A stable democracy and the alternation of left and right governments have made Chile an example of free market economy. Present since 1990, Bolloré Logistics Chile has been undergoing a major local growth since 2012 and is set to achieving a Top 5 position in the local market by 2020.


Chile has been the outstanding student of the Latin American economy for the last 30 years.

A stable democracy and the alternation of left and right governments have made of it an example of free market economy in the region. The Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) of 2010 ranked Chile as one of the 30th most competitive country in the world, and the first in Latin America. Besides, Chile also has the most favorable foreign debt rating of the continent.

Bolloré Logistics Chile started its operations in 1990 and has been undergoing a significant local growth since 2012. With currently over 40 dedicated staff, Bolloré Logistics Chile can count on its main office in Santiago, as well as a 3,500 sqm warehouse and another operating office at Santiago International Airport (SCL).

With this infrastructure located in the central region and renowned agents in the north and south of the country, Bolloré Logistics offers integrated logistics solutions to both local and global customers.

The business focus differs from one zone to another. For instance, the Southern zone oversees the export business focus of fresh products (fruits, salmon), wine and wood; the Central zone puts emphasis on the import in consumer retail, high-tech, telecom and aerospace; while the Northern zone is oriented towards industrial projects and mining (main cooper producer in the world), astronomy and energy (solar, wind and geothermal).

​To highlight one of its flagship projects, in mid-November 2016, the Projects Division of Bolloré Logistics Chile handled a charter of a 155-ton transformer from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to Santiago de Chile, using the Antonov An-225, the world’s biggest airplane. This shipment is the heaviest single piece ever airlifted in the Americas, and the second heaviest ever transported by air, in the world.

Presently, Bolloré Logistics Chile is set to continue its growth as per the last five years, as well as achieving a Top 5 position in the local market by 2020. Therefore, the teams have been working on improving customer service with a focus on processes, measures and performance.
In this regard, Bolloré Logistics Chile holds and maintains certifications such as the ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management Systems, the ISO 14001:2015 for Environmental Management Systems and the OHSAS 18001:2007 for Occupational Health & Safety System.
