Multiple fields of expertise
Bolloré Logistics has strong expertise in luxury, perfumes & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, aerospace, energy and food.
Since 2020 and the global health crisis, Bolloré Logistics demonstrated its unique know-how in the healthcare sector. From the transport of masks and protective equipment, including Covid tests and protective equipment, to vaccines for low- and moderate-income countries, Bolloré Logistics has demonstrated its specific expertise to ensure the safety and integrity of highly sensitive products.
Innovation serving the environment
Bolloré Logistics places technological innovation at the heart of its strategy by integrating new purpose-designed tools, strengthening its global network. The customer is at the heart of the Bolloré Logistics approach. Listening to customers’ needs and involving them in project development ensure that Bolloré Logistics produces useful and pragmatic innovations.
A global network
In 2021, there was a scissor effect between the rebound in growth and the scarcity of air capacity and, especially, shipping capacity (ships and containers), which led to sharp increases in freight rates. Despite this difficult environment and the extreme operational tensions it generated, Bolloré Logistics was able to support its global customers and thus return to activity levels that were nearly on par with those of the period preceding the global health crisis.
Activity was driven by the strength of vertical healthcare, luxury/fragrance and cosmetics markets, humanitarian aid and renewable energies, as well as the recovery of sectors hit hard in 2020, such as aerospace and automotive. Meanwhile, industrial projects, mining and oil and gas are still affected.
Powering Sustainable Logistics, the CSR performance management program
Launched in 2018 and based on ISO 26000, the gold standard in CSR (corporate social responsibility), the Powering Sustainable Logistics program mobilizes all Bolloré Logistics stakeholders around 11 commitments with quantified targets to be achieved by 2030.
The AcTogether internal challenge, which was created to generate more social and environmental value, took place again in 2021. The event made it possible to highlight 807 initiatives in 55 countries around the world, energize employees backing projects and share best practices across the network.
