June 15, 2021: Bollore Logistics Morocco and Bollore Logistics Spain team quickly developed a logistics plan for the US Army Southern European Task Force – Africa (SETAF-AF) that allowed European drivers from Italy to transfer the military cargo to Moroccan carriers in Barcelona.

Following the trailers transfer, the team coordinated road transport to Algecrias, ferry transport to Tanger-Med, and road transport and equipment download for multiple training locations in Morocco.
