First direct shipment of kenyan coffee to South Korea (Bolloré)

(BOLLORE ) - Bolloré Transport & Logistics was recently commissioned to handle a logistic operation organizing the first direct shipment of coffee by Kenyan farmers to South Korea without the use of a coffee brokerage. This was made possible thanks to sector reforms by the government of Kenya that now allow farmers to market their produce directly with a view to fetch a better price for their produce.

The shipment that was flagged off in March docked weeks after into the country. It was successfully done with Bolloré Transport & Logistics, the company being contracted to oversee the processing, bulking, stuffing and shipping of the containerized cargo. Through this operation, Bolloré Transport & Logistics was able to support 9,582 small-scale farmers from the South Rift Region of Kenya.

One of the commitments at Bolloré Transport & Logistics is to foster local development through the services we offer. We appreciate the vision and efforts to improve the value of coffee to local farmers, and we intend to play our part as a logistics provider to support our clients and help them grow their business.” said Auni Bhaiji, East Africa Regional Director for Operations, Corporate Development, and External Affairs at Bolloré Transport & Logistics.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics has a high level of expertise to handle sensitive commodities that represent a high value. It has by far, the largest public warehouse licensed by the Coffee Board of Kenya with 15,000 SqM dedicated space in Nairobi and Mombasa and services centered on storage, in house processing, logistical planning, land and sea transport.

Coffee farming in Kenya is largely done by small scale farmers in different parts of the country. Bolloré Transport & Logistics, as a global logistics provider, is keen on leveraging on its network to ensure that the farmers can access the untapped markets and export their produce.
