In June 2020, Bolloré Transport & Logistics Senegal, Mali, and Guinea worked in close collaboration to ensure the successful transport and delivery of over-sized mining freight from Senegal to Guinea.
Bolloré Transport & Logistics—a specialist in ground transport to land-locked countries in Africa—was entrusted with 227 over-sized parcels of mining material. Three convoys were formed to ensure the freight's delivery from Dakar in Senegal to the Loila mining site in Guinea.
The parcels were first loaded in Senegal on 62 flatbed trucks and semi-trailer vehicles. Customs clearance for this tailored operation was managed by our experts in Senegal. In Mali, Bolloré Transport & Logistics' local teams subsequently oversaw the convoy's entry into Malian territory via Moussala in Southeastern Senegal. Upon arrival, customs clearance was managed by local teams in Guinea.
Despite the adverse weather conditions and rudimentary laterite roads, the 1,731-kilometer journey was completed on time. The operation demonstrates the competence of Bolloré Transport & Logistics' teams and the performance of its West African network.
