Mar 25, 2019: Bollore Transport & Logistics will launch AEROHUB, a new 15,000 square metre platform in Cote d'Ivoire in April 2019. The announcement of the same will be made at the Africa CEO Forum on March 25-26, 2019 held at Kigali, Rwanda.

Located near Abidjan International Airport and less than 15 kilometre from the port terminal, AEROHUB will foster the development of national and sub-regional logistics activities.

AEROHUB is a new tri-temperature platform having -20°C, 2°C to 10°C and ambient temperature designed for the reception, storage, and distribution of a range of goods, including food products such as dry, fresh and frozen, pharmaceutical products and high-value-added tech products. The new site will feature a warehouse management system ensuring real-time goods traceability and 24X7 security systems operational throughout the warehouse.

"AEROHUB is designed to meet the needs of our customers in Cote d'lvoire, and will support the development of the country's economy by serving as a strategic connection point between sea and air logistics flows. It will also favour inter-African trade, a central aspect in our current strategy for the enhanced economic integration of Africa," stated Thierry Ehrenbogen, deputy CEO of Bollore Transport & Logistics.

On opening, AEROHUB will be fully equipped with low energy consumption (LED) lighting system with movement detectors and a storm-water holding reservoir. Further projects aimed at shrinking the company's environmental footprint are under review to supplement the systems implemented in the initial phase of the project.
