Last September, Bolloré Logistics organized a conference gathering approximately 50 members from Vinacas – Vietnam Cashew Association – in its Ho Chi Minh Head Office, to share about the upcoming Cashew Campaign 2017 in Tanzania.

Then, and in order to reinforce its partnership with Vinacas members in Vietnam and promote its expertise in Cashew Nut supply chain worldwide, Bolloré Logistics Vietnam attended the 9th Vinacas Golden Cashew Rendezvous on November 13-15, 2017, in Phu Quoc, Vietnam.
This event is held every year to promote the international cashew trade. On average, 400 domestic and international delegates are present from over 40 countries.
As a leader with the largest integrated logistics network in Africa, Bolloré Logistics seized this opportunity to promote its logistics services in Africa to all cashew-related companies in Vietnam and globally. The B2B networking events, conversations and the conference allowed us to refine our knowledge on what can be done for raw cashew importers and cashew kernel exporters in Vietnam in terms of logistics services such as warehousing & fobbing at the country of origin, sea freight from Africa to Vietnam or from Vietnam towards the USA, Europe, and Middle East-South Asia.
"This was the perfect occasion to gather more information about the soft commodity market trends – especially regarding food safety and regulations, and to further develop our trade lanes to create new opportunities," mentioned Marc MOESCHLIN, Managing Director at Bolloré Logistics Vietnam.
Bolloré Logistics' team consisted of Marc MOESCHLIN, Managing Director at Bolloré Logistics Vietnam; Astrid VANIER, General Manager – Sales and Development at Bolloré Logistics Vietnam and Nhat-Minh NGUYEN, Africa Route Manager at Bolloré Logistics Vietnam. Those mentioned also act as points of contact in Vietnam.
