Logistics: Swiss group Fracht opens office in Togo

(Togo First) - Fracht, the logistics Swiss group, is opening an office in Lomé, Togo. The group’s president for West Africa and the Indian Ocean, Lionel Tristan, made the announcement last week in a meeting with Togolese Minister of Maritime Economy, Edem Tengue.

Fracht picked the Togolese capital for its dynamism and the importance of its port platform on the West African coast. According to Tristan, the move is proof that the company believes in the port of Lomé and its development potential.

Lomé’s port has indeed expanded its activities in recent years and, very recently, MSC, the Italian-Swiss company, has acquired Bolloré Africa Logistics. 

Though it opened its office in Lomé only last week, Fracht started operating in the country last month, according to the group.

Based in Basel, Switzerland, Fracht has over 145 offices spread across 50 countries and more than 2,000 employees. Togolese authorities believe that the new office will reinforce the country's status as a sub-regional port player, and support its ambition to become a sub-regional logistics hub.
