May 25, 2017: Bolloré Logistics Mozambique has been responsible for providing global logistics services to Sasol since February 2016. Sasol is an international integrated chemicals and energy company operating in 33 countries worldwide

Sasol develops and commercialises technologies, builds and operates world-scale facilities to produce a range of high-value product streams, including liquid fuels, chemicals and low-carbon electricity.

Bolloré Logistics Mozambique teams are in charge of providing end-to-end logistics services to Sasol. The operations in this 40,000 square meter base include international freight forwarding, customs clearance, stevedoring, inventory management, local procurement for Sasol, implementation and monitoring of WMS for all equipment related to the drilling campaign (drilling pipe, chemical storage, casing, well heads, explosives, etc).

To coordinate all those on-shore activities, an experienced team of 99 employees (drivers, yard crew, managers) including 95 percent of Mozambican manpower ensures the delivery of an excellent service to the customer.

Since operations started and as part of its continuous improvement policy, Bolloré Logistics Mozambique issued 4,853 stop cards to promote the best operational practices on this project. To date, the Group transported 6 drilling rigs, including an original rig importation via Maputo, an 800 km journey to Temane. Zero accident or lost time injury were reported since the beginning of operations.

This challenging project required the support of various Oil & Gas experts located in Mozambique, as well as in Paris, London and South Africa.
