Bolloré Transport & Logistics has established an agency office in Kalemie in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

The new site, located in the province of Tanganyika, will provide logistics solutions to humanitarian organisations based in the region. It will contribute to the development of intra-African trade in eastern DRC, the port of Kigoma (Tanzania), Bujumbura (Burundi) and Mpulungu (Zambia) via Tanganyika Lake.

The agency will also support economic and social development projects in the DRC, including the construction of port and airport infrastructure and the exploration of mining sites.

Rodolphe Kembukuswa Diwa, ceo of Bolloré Transport & Logistics in southern DRC, said the company is committed to fostering economic and social development in the country. “We are boosting our presence in eastern DRC and we will be developing the supply chain of our customers, for example through cross-docking, to reduce goods processing times,” he added.

The Kalemie office is located near to the Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer du Congo (SNCC) rail network and the port of Kalemie.
