This award recognizes Bolloré Logistics Chile’s growth and development based on the company’s history within the country and its success stories, the innovation initiatives carried out, as well as its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) contributions.

With its 20-year history, Bolloré Logistics Chile has been providing solutions in freight forwarding for hazardous and non-hazardous products, warehousing services, transportation, value-added consulting and development to handle the freight of their customers.
