Bolloré Côte d’Ivoire buys driving simulator


Bolloré Transport & Logistics Côte d’Ivoire has announced the acquisition of its very first driving simulator.

The simulator will be made available to its Pan-African Port Training Centre (CFPP) in Abidjan.

The multi-business simulator is the first of its kind to be acquired by the CFPP.

It allows employees to complete their training by practising on different types of machinery: STS gantries, RTGs, forklift trucks, mobile cranes, heavy goods, and so on.

It also provides a safe learning environment with rapid control.

For the trainers, the simulator will speed up training and reduce equipment downtime by 30 per cent.

It will also become possible to change the work situations according to the typical weather conditions (rain, wind, fog, etc.) that can affect manoeuvres on the ground.

“We are pleased to introduce this driving simulator to the CFPP, which will enable us to provide a new training programme,” said Maryam AÏDARA, Director of the Pan-African port training centre.  

“This virtual reality device brings real added value and offers many advantages by preparing trainees for all the situations they may encounter in the course of their work.”

In June Bolloré opened a new logistics hub in the industrial port of Kribi.
