Transport and Logistics in Niger, Market Focus

By Bolloré Logistics Niger

 Niger is a landlocked country located in West Africa bordered by Burkina Faso and Mali in the West, Algeria and Libya in the North, Chad in the East and Nigeria and Benin in the South. Niger's geographical position makes it a crossroads of trade between North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Niger's economic growth reached 6.5% in 2018 and is expected to remain around 7% over the next five years, thanks in particular to the start of crude oil exports planned for 2022 with the construction of the Agadem-Cotonou pipeline. Besides, the construction and services sectors have developed strongly in recent years through several projects such as the renovation of Diori Haman International Airport and the construction of the Kandadji Dam.

 

Bolloré Transport & Logistics first established itself in Niger in 1962 through the acquisition of SOCOPAO, which carried out transit and customs clearance operations. Today, the group has become one of the leaders in integrated logistics in Niger with operational centers and offices in Niamey and Diori Haman International Airport, as well as agencies at the border points of Agadez, Gaya and Torodi.

 

 

 With a staff count of 83 employees, Bolloré Logistics Niger offers end-to-end logistics solutions to local and international customers from a wide range of industries such as oil and gas, NGOs and defense. The services offered include the transport of containers, the transport of bulk goods and oversized equipment, as well as the import and export of small packages via the Express service.

With several warehouses and a 40,000 m² platform in Niamey, Bolloré Logistics Niger also carries out customs clearance and delivery formalities for all customers after passing through the warehouses.
