SIIM and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo joined forces in support of the mango season in the Ivory Coast, thereby helping to protect the local economy

By combining logistics and human resources expertise, Europe’s leading producer and exporter of West African mangoes (SIIM) and AFKLMP Cargo cooperated in transporting 400 tonnes of mangoes from Abidjan to Paris and then on to European markets in April.

This team effort overcame major challenges, using cargo capabilities deployed for the transport of healthcare materials to the African continent, working in strict compliance with measures intended to combat the corona pandemic.

This successful joint operation had major stakes, as mango exports are a key asset of the Ivorian economy. Mangoes are one of the most important crops of the Poro region in northern Ivory Coast. The mango orchards have economic and social value in terms of local welfare and employment in rural towns, but also in terms of combating poverty and extremism in remote areas.

It is estimated that 1,000 tons of mangoes are exported each season, generating 1,000 jobs in the agricultural sector and an equal number of jobs in related sectors, ensuring a living for more than 2,000 people.
