Bolloré Logistics Zambia awarded five-year contract for local distribution of Total Lubricants

Bolloré Transport & Logistics and supply chain services company Czarnikow are collaborating to support Bolloré’s sustainable development in East Africa through the VIVE Sustainable Supply Programme.

Bolloré Logistics Zambia has been awarded a contract for the distribution of lubricants by Total Zambia. The contract was awarded for a period of five years.

Bolloré Logistics Zambia will provide local distribution services of lubricants from two main Total depots in Lusaka and Ndola to 15 destinations within Zambia. Three dedicated trucks of 5 tons, 10 tons and 20 tons were purchased for this project following specific client’s requirements. The trucks are closed body straight trucks, the floors are equipped with rollers transfer/pushers and the back of the trucks are fitted with hydraulic tail lift system. These enhancements were necessary to load and handle 210 litres steel drums, 1,000 litres Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) and 20 litres plastic drums daily.

All three trucks are fitted with GPS devices to provide Bolloré Logistics with real time information on trucks whereabouts, drivers’ behaviours on the road, routes taken, vehicle consumptions and a wide range of reports to optimise trips and vehicle consumptions.

Olivier Terra, Managing Director of Bolloré Transport & Logistics Zambia, commented: “This new contract with TOTAL gives Bolloré Transport & Logistics Zambia an opportunity to strengthen its existing relationship with a major player in the fuel and lubricants business and offers an ideal entry in the local distribution business in Zambia. It is recognition of our relentless drive for objective performances and continuous improvements which we strive to apply daily in our professional lives.”
