Bolloré Logistics launches weekly rail service from Djibouti to Indode, Ethiopia 18 February 2020

Cuts transit time to 15 hours compared to three days by road

Bolloré Logistics flagged off from Djibouti the first unimodal train fully loaded with 102 TEUs bound for Indode Station in Ethiopia. The cargo, which belongs to clients of Bolloré Logistics, is the first containerised consignment to be transported exclusively on rail from Djibouti to Ethiopia.

Through an agreement with Ethio-Djibouti Railways (EDR), Bolloré Logistics will propose to its customers a weekly departure from Djibouti to Indode to provide them with a faster and more efficient transport solution.

The Ethio-Djibouti Rail is an electronically powered standard gauge rail which cuts transit time between the two countries to 15 hours compared to road transport which can take around three days.
