The CMA CGM Group has signed logistics memorandum of agreements with Multiparques Group, represented by its General Manager Leonel Pinto, on December 18, 2014 in Paris, and in the presence of the French and Angola Foreign Affairs Ministers, Laurent Fabius and George Rebelo Pinto Chicoti. The agreements define the two groups association for the terminal operation, and tend to develop logistics platforms in Angola. Alexis Michel, CMA CGM Group Logistics and Reefer Senior Vice President, said, “Lobito is Angola second port, and its location and train transportation connections make it a strategic entry point in West Africa. This not only allows Benguela and Huambo – two major Angola cities - service, but also thanks to the new railroad renovation, to link the city to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia Copperbelt mining region to the sea. Those different elements promise the Port of Lobito to a great intermodal future.”
