For instance, we have rolled out new equipment that is more efficient and consumes less energy, in the shape of electric towing vehicles and gantries, and we lead a policy on the environmental certification of our terminals. In this respect, reducing congestion in port cities and boosting service for landlocked regions, are two of our key priorities. The intermodal solutions that Bolloré Africa Logistics develops for its customers serve to reduce urban congestion and improve goods transport flows, thus reducing environmental impact.
For example, the barge transport service in Lagos operated by our terminal enables the transfer of over 3,000 containers, easing road congestion in the Nigerian largest city.
In Diamniadio, located 30 kilometres from Dakar in Senegal, a new multimodal business hub connected to rail and road contributes to reducing the parking time of imported vehicles and containers in the port zone and cut truck traffic in the city by 5%.
