Bolloré Transport & Logistics Mozambique successfully Completes Heavy Shipment

November 19th, 2019

The months of August through to September 2019 saw Bolloré Transport and Logistics Mozambique involved in a large shipment, handled in Mocimboa Da Praia.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics Mozambique, supported by the Group’s global network, worked hand in hand with its client, a leader in Engineering, procurement, and construction industry, in providing a unique solution for the consolidation of over 3,000 tons of cargo, transshipped via Kenya.

The cargo was loaded onto a geared Landing Craft Vessel and successfully delivered, on time, to the LNG Afungi site via the shallow water port constraint of Mocimboa da Praia. 

The sea transportation leg of the heavy-duty containers was conducted over three consecutive voyages, whilst avoiding the road infrastructure constraints of Northern Mozambique. 

The operation was conducted within the highest QHSE standards, showcasing once again the capabilities of Bolloré Transport & Logistics, which consistently and successfully handle Logistics Projects with the local company’s expertise lying in International Freight Forwarding, Shipping Agency, Chartering and Road transportation.
