August 05, 2020: Bollore Transport & Logistics have processed 10,575 tonnes or 940 TEUs of mangoes via air and maritime transport from Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, and Mali to European markets.
In addition to existing maritime solutions, the company has also chartered three flights having transported 90 tonnes of mangoes to Europe from the airports of Abidjan and Ouagadougou. Cygnus Air, a Madrid-based cargo airline, assisted the air transportation.
A partner of the mango industry, Bollore Transport & Logistics guaranteed the cold chain, right from the packing phase in hard-to-access production zones, through its logistics platforms located in Cote d’Ivoire (Bouake, Ferke, and Korhogo), Burkina Faso (Bobo-Dioulasso) and Mali (Sikasso and Bamako).
Once the mangoes arrive at the Port of Abidjan or at the airports of Abidjan or Ouagadougou, the refrigerated containers and pallets are stored and connected to power in special areas pending their shipment to Europe through partnerships formed with ship owners and airline companies.
