FREETOWN TERMINAL (BOLLORÉ)

In November 2010, following an international call for bids, the Freetown Port Authority awarded the concession for the new container terminal at the Port to Bolloré Africa Logistics Freetown. The concession took effect in March 2011. The 20-year concession includes plans to renovate and modernize the container terminal. Bolloré Africa Logistics, which now employs hundreds of people at the terminal, has started a wide range of developments: refurbishment of the container wharf, introduction of secured, computerized
management, delivery of appropriate modern handling equipment. Bolloré Africa Logistics plans to pursue its investment to ensure that its customers enjoy optimal service, while doubling the volumes handled within the next five years. The goal of Bolloré Africa Logistics is to raise the productivity of the Port infrastructures to the level of Africa’s top ports in the very short term.
