Bolloré Transport & Logistics has announced that it has opened a new multimodal logistics hub, an Aerohub, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

The hub is located at the Félix Houphouët Boigny airport and close to the Port of Abidjan, making it a connection point between international sea and air logistics. Over €6m has already been invested to launch the initial phase of the project, out of a total €12m earmarked in the long term.

The new Aerohub will receive, store and distribute via a tri-temperature platform – frozen, chilled, and ambient temperature goods intended for the Côte d’Ivoire and sub-regional market for companies in the mass retail, telecoms, pharmaceutical and catering sectors.

Designed to reduce the carbon footprint associated with its business activities, the hub is equipped with a low energy consumption (LED) lighting system with movement detectors, a stormwater holding reservoir, and electric handling equipment powered by solar panels.
