Van den Bosch in partnership with Senegalese firm

Van den Bosch has entered into partnership with the CSTT-AO Group in Senegal.

The logistics service provider is further expanding its network in West Africa through this partnership, with the focus on liquid bulk logistics.

The CSTT-AO Group started in 1949 as a family business, set up for trade to and from Africa. With over 75 years of experience in logistics, the company has built a solid reputation focusing on supply chain management and integrated logistics solutions.
“Working with CSTT in Senegal will enable us to further develop the West African market,” said Mark Ashton, commercial director of Van den Bosch DMCC.

“Increasing our presence and working with the right partners is essential to our strategy of redirecting traditional transport flows towards more sustainable bulk transport solutions. We see significant potential in West Africa in liquid bulk for the food industry, meaning foodstuffs, but also vegetable oils, for example.

“With our French-speaking sales team, we see opportunities to further connect Senegal with the rest of Africa, but also with Europe and the Far East. CSTT’s leading position and experienced team are the recipe for us to successfully achieve our goals.”
Joaquin Gomez, CEO of the CSTT-AO Group’s logisticsd, added: “The connection with Van den Bosch goes beyond a simple supplier/customer relationship. We are delighted with their confidence in the new adventure.
“This partnership strengthens the position of both parties with regard to innovative solutions for the development of the local economy in Senegal. The mutual trust and support will inspire our organisations to look to the future together and to develop our leading position in liquid bulk logistics in Senegal.”
