Bolloré Transport & Logistics has partnered with Cameroon’s Single Window for Foreign Trade Operations (GUCE) to ease international trade and transport. A Memorandum of Understanding to cement the collaboration has been signed by the Director General of GUCE, Isidore Biyiha and the Regional Director for the Gulf of Guinea at Bolloré, Mohamed Abdoulaye Diop. Both parties penned the MoU in Yaounde on Tuesday September 17, 2019, on the sidelines of the seventh International Single Window Conference and Exhibition.
The partnership seeks to create a collaboration platform which will work towards simplifying transit operations in Cameroon. It also aims at easing customs clearance procedures by dematerializing the import and export process. To ensure smooth functioning, the MoU specifies that a six-man follow-up committee will be put in place which shall meet at least once each quarter.
Mama Nsounchia, Director of Risk and Development of the Gulf of Guinea at Bolloré said the collaboration will be a game changer as Bolloré will put forth all its integrated logistic competences. He reiterated the company’s determination to support Cameroon in the logistic sector on its drive towards emergence. Mama noted that Bolloré, with a similar objective in mind, had signed partnership accords with the Directorate General of Customs in 2016 and the National Shippers Council in 2018.
It should be recalled Bolloré Transport & Logistics is a major player in the transport and logistic sector in Cameroon. Globally, the company is present in 102 countries and features amongst the 500 biggest companies in the world
