Bolloré Transport & Logistics initiates operations at a new agency in Kalemie in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

(BOLLORE) - Bolloré Transport & Logistics is announcing the opening of an agency in Kalemie in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The new site, located in the province of Tanganyika, strengthens the network of the leading logistics operator in Africa.

The opening of the new agency provides a logistics solution to the humanitarian organisations based in the region. It will also contribute via Tanganyika lake to the development of intra-African trade in eastern DRC, the Port of Kigoma (Tanzania), Bujumbura (Burundi) and Mpulungu (Zambia). Lastly, the agency will support economic and social development projects in the DRC, including the construction of port and airport infrastructure and the exploration of mining sites.

Connected to the rail network of the national railway company Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer du Congo (SNCC) and to the Port of Kalemie, the Bolloré Transport & Logistics agency in Kalemie benefits from an administrative and customs ecosystem facilitating logistics operations.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics is committed to fostering the economic and social development of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We are boosting our presence in eastern DRC and we will be developing the supply chain of our customers, for example through cross-docking, to reduce goods processing times,” says Rodolphe Kembukuswa Diwa, CEO of Bolloré Transport & Logistics in Southern DRC.
