Agility facility to be leading retailer's central warehouse and distribution centre
KUWAITI logistics major Agility has leased warehouse space in the Agility Logistics Park (ALP) in Abidjan to CDCI (Compagnie de Distribution de Cote D'Ivoire), the Ivory Coast's top retailer, for a new nationwide warehousing and distribution centre

CDCI, which operates supermarkets in the Ivory Coast, will use the ALP facility as a central distribution centre to hold stock and distribute a wide range of food and non-food consumer products to support its retail operations across the West African state.
CDCI chose to lease at the Agility Logistics Park because it offers secure, international-standard warehousing and facilities and services available to support CDCI's expanding business across the country.
The Agility Logistics Park location, on the main highway between Abidjan and Yamoussoukro at PK24, was also a key consideration for CDCI, said the press release.
The location provides the ideal geographic centre for supporting CDCI's Abidjan stores as well as its network of stores across the country.
Said CDCI supply chain chief Hicham Kitane: 'By choosing the Agility Logistics Park, CDCI has addressed one of the biggest constraints to companies doing business in West Africa - the lack of high standard logistic infrastructure. This project is one of the key milestones in our new supply chain strategy, which will support our business steady growth.'
