July 09, 2020: Bollore Logistics Madagascar has opened opening a new office in Ivato International Airport, Antananarivo. With a soft opening in February 2020, the new office is now home to 49 employees.

The facility includes 300 square metres of offices and 108 square metres of customs warehouses and will provide logistics solutions with a tailor-made and secure service for transport from remote regions of Madagascar to Ivato International Airport, the main airport for air traffic cargo. This perfectly suits the increased volumes in the vanilla market, with new flows created with a door-to-door offer to the US for vanilla products.

"The opening of this new, modern and secured office is testament to a skilled team who has succeeded in 3 years, to gain 60 percent market share of the difficult and demanding vanilla market." said Sebastien Barth, managing director of Bollore Logistics Madagascar.

The positioning has also strengthened partnerships with clients and suppliers and facilitated end-to-end solutions for all vanilla exporters. New solutions can also now be offered to the various other markets including the developing textile market.

Benefits of the new premises include fluidity of operations and communication due to the proximity to the airlines, handlers and customs. During the Covid-19 period (since March 2020) the office has facilitated the transfer of flows from destinations not served from Madagascar via the Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub.
