Move One has announced the official opening of its office in Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso. The new office brings the number of Move One owned offices to 12 across nine African countries.
The Ouagadougou office will provide Move One’s full range of services, including relocation, moving and logistics services. Additionally, Move One believes that opening its Ouagadougou office will provide an advantage to current and potential logistics customers by being strategically positioned near West Africa's busiest ports: Port of Cotonou, Benin; Lome, Togo; Tema, Ghana; Abidjan and Cote d’Ivoire. All of which are main gateways for a variety of diplomatic, humanitarian, military and energy project-related goods bound for land-locked Burkina Faso.
With a presence in Burkina Faso, Move One is confident that its local expertise will benefit customers by providing a higher level of direct service and enhanced lines of communication.
Move One’s Director of Global Logistics, Carl Corriveau said, “We are already providing these services remotely in the region. By having our own Move One office in Burkina Faso, we will have increased visibility on the cargo which will give us the opportunity to foresee possible complications and challenges surrounding documentation or transport before it becomes an issue or impacts our customers.”
The expansion will also allow Move One to directly set up, manage and execute spare parts management and warehouse distribution projects throughout Burkina Faso in support of key telecoms and humanitarian customers, cold chain storage and distribution services for military, oil, gas, and mining installations.
Move One is also expecting an increase in demand for moving and relocation services in the region, especially in the diplomatic and defence sectors.
