Bolloré Africa Logistics unveiled its new brand on March 30, 2023. The company will now operate under the name: AGL, standing for Africa Global Logistics.
With this new brand, AGL affirms its ambition within the MSC Group to continue to contribute to the sustainable transformation of Africa and emerging markets, thanks to its global, customized, and innovative logistics solution.
As the reference multimodal logistics operator (port, logistics, maritime and rail) in Africa, AGL has the ambition to participate in the transformation of Africa by providing customised logistics solutions, improving the connectivity of territories, and contributing to the establishment of a virtuous logistics ecosystem for all its stakeholders.
Provider of integrated logistics solutions
AGL, which has been present on the continent for more than a century, will continue to provide its local and international customers with a competitive integrated logistics network. To this end, it will improve the productivity of the terminals it operates to better serve all of its customers. AGL will develop multimodal logistics solutions (rail, road, air, river) to meet the expectations of its customers and meet the challenges of logistics.
Driving force behind the global connectivity of African territories
AGL has over 250 logistics and maritime agencies, 22 port and rail concessions, 66 dry ports and 2 river terminals. Through this network, the company designs and implements solutions adapted to the needs of its customers along the value chain, including less accessible areas. AGL will accelerate its investments to develop its capacities and facilitate the import and export of goods. AGL will respond to the challenges of intra-African trade, energy transition, demographic growth, improvement of the living environment and digitalization of Africa.
A contributor to sustainable and inclusive growth in Africa
With its 21,000 employees in 49 countries, AGL will deploys a development strategy that includes both the men and the women of the continent. AGL will continue to promote African talents and the SME ecosystem by unlocking the potential of young African talent.
Concerned about its environmental footprint, AGL will make sustainable investments, implement programs to set up eco-responsibility in transport (Green Terminal) and mobilize its employees, subcontractors, and suppliers to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment.
“We are pleased to begin this adventure within the MSC Group. This new brand reinforces our ambition to be a trusted logistics partner for our customers in Africa and around the world, while underlining our commitment to innovate and participate alongside Africa’s states and partners in the transformation of the continent. I am convinced that with the constant mobilization of our teams, we will succeed in designing innovative solutions to create value for our customers and partners.” said Phillippe Labonne, CEO of AGL.
