Bolloré supports African mine

July 17 - Antrak Logistics has consigned 147 tons (149.4 tonnes) of airfreight, 1,375 teu and 9,750 tons (9906.5 tonnes) of project cargo for the Houndé Gold mine project, which is operated by a subsidiary of the Canadian Endeavour Mining Group.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics was appointed to coordinate and manage the international transport, customs transit formalities and delivery of all of the mine's construction equipment, through its subsidiaries, Antrak Logistics Australia, Bolloré Transport & Logistics Ivory Coast and Bolloré Transport & Logistics Burkina Faso.

The group's local branch in Bobo-Dioulasso, less than 100 km away from the mine was established as the project office.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics has been able to initiate dedicated block trains through Sitarail, one of the group's railway concessions, to transport containers via rail from Abidjan port to Bobo-Dioulasso. So far, Sitarail has dispatched nine dedicated block trains, each with a capacity of up to 50 teu per train.

The project to date is ahead of schedule, with no accidents being reported during project cargo delivery, says the company.
