Bolloré Logistics Charters an Iliouchine Il-76: Destination Guyana

June 10th, 2020

Bolloré Logistics continues its operations related to the management of the health crisis and for the first time charters an Iliouchine II-76 to Guyana. Departing from Paris-Vatry on 6 June, the cargo flight was received by Bolloré Logistics Guyana teams on 7 June at 11.30am in Cayenne.

On board, more than 150 m3 of goods including sanitary equipment, hundreds of thousands of masks, hydro-alcoholic gel and gloves for pharmacies and economic and local actors. Among the batches sent, masks ordered by ArianeGroup for their own operational needs but also some of them that the Group gave to the prefecture in support of the territory. On this occasion, Prefect Marc Del Grande thanked Bolloré Logistics for its professionalism and resilience to ensure the economic continuity of Guyana.

Also loaded on board, were products from several other industries such as automotive, textiles, telecoms or high tech.

This operation, which took place successfully, was made possible thanks to the synergy of the Bolloré Logistics teams, about fifteen people mobilized from start to finish: in Toulouse for the chartering of the aircraft, the loading plan and the handling. In Roissy for the entire export process; securing cargo, export customs and removal. And finally, in Guyana where the teams processed the whole import process; reception, dispatch, storage, customs import until delivery.

Since the beginning of the crisis, Bolloré Logistics, a global leader in supply chain management, has played an active role in continuing to serve its customers and reducing supply chain impacts.
