April 13, 2021: As part of the campaign to fight against malaria in Côte d’Ivoire, Bolloré Transport & Logistics is importing, storing and distributing 13 million mosquito nets for UNICEF.
“We are pleased that UNICEF chose us for the logistics for the insecticide-treated mosquito nets, which are useful in the fight against malaria in our country. We provide our partners with the quality of our logistics network and the experience of our 1,500 Ivorian employees, who work to ensure the logistics for equipment intended for the Côte d’Ivoire population in complete safety,” said Joël Hounsinou, managing director of Bolloré Transport & Logistics Côte d’Ivoire.
Following the success of the campaigns in 2018 and 2019, Bolloré Transport & Logistics Côte d’Ivoire has renewed the process, delivering 418 containers of mosquito nets in Côte d’Ivoire. Since the end of 2020, these containers have been handled, stored and shipped by road to Bolloré Transport & Logistics warehouses.
The latter are used to dispatch 80,000 long-lasting insecticide-treated mosquito nets to 67 health districts in Côte d’Ivoire. The logistics operation for UNICEF equipment will be completed in May 2021.
