September 13, 2021: Bolloré Transport & Logistics has acquired 5,000 square metres warehousing space at the Nairobi Gate Industrial Park in Nairobi to accommodate its expanding supply chain activities. The highly flexible ultra-modern warehouse allows Bolloré Transport & Logistics to accommodate the expanding requirements of its contract logistics clientele from the FMCG and beverage industries.
Located on Nairobi’s Eastern Bypass, the warehouse is highly accessible and convenient with connectivity to key arterial roads, Jomo Kenyatta international airport and the inland container depot. Modifications were also introduced for the warehouse to suite the requirements and be fully operational.
In addition to this new acquisition, Bolloré Transport & Logistics operates 161,277 square metres warehousing space in Nairobi and Mombasa through ownership or long-term lease. The company provides both customs bonded and free value-added warehousing facilities for FMCG, retail, manufacturing, and soft commodities such as tea and coffee, and the aid and relief sector.
“Bolloré Transport & Logistics has experienced a rapid expansion of our contract logistics and warehousing business in Kenya, prompting us to seek out high-quality third-party warehousing facilities to supplement our owned sites. The Nairobi Gate Industrial Park meets our infrastructural standards from which we can continue to offer value-added inventory management services to our clients,” said Jason Reynard, regional CEO for East Africa of Bolloré Transport & Logistics.
