With its unmatched expertise in automotive logistics and multimodal supply chain solutions, GEFCO carried out the first 2018 wagons in December 2 to support the PSA Group's new facility in Kenitra, Morocco. As of the end of 2019, 45 more wagons will be moved from Saint Nazaire Port in France to Tangier Port in Morocco. A total of 47 wagons will transport new vehicles to Kenitra on the railway, where the PSA Group will open its new facility. The production capacity of the Kenitra plant is expected to reach 2020 thousand vehicles by 200.
A challenging challenge for industrial requirements and capabilities, this project symbolizes the strong partnership between the PSA Group and GEFCO.
Supports PSA Group's growth in Kenitra
This link between Kenitra and Tangier will help the PSA Group achieve its ambitious goals for its new facility. Production in Kenitra is expected to increase to 2019 thousand vehicles annually in 100 and 2020 thousand annually since 200.
In order to achieve success in every step of this complex operation, GEFCO's teams from all over the world have made a cooperation to direct the wagons from Saint Nazaire Port in France, to renew them, to arrange them according to their needs, to ship and to reach Tangier Port. The wagons, which will be transported from the PSA Group's Kenitra facility to the Port of Tangier before being exported to Europe, will be operated by the Moroccan National Railways Office.
Anne Lambusson, Executive Vice President of GEFCO's PSA Group, made the following statement: “We are very pleased that PSA has trusted GEFCO in this exciting project. We believe that we have the right expertise and the capacity to turn this business into success. GEFCO's unmatched supply chain expertise enables us to tackle this extraordinary challenge. We look forward to contributing to our client's growth strategy. ”
Significant contribution of GEFCO to its strong position in Africa
With this project, GEFCO supports the PSA Group's ambitious development strategy in Morocco and Africa. Planned to make Kenitra one of the pioneering industrial centers, the PSA Group has already started to develop a network for this region.
GEFCO, which will further strengthen its position in Morocco with this project, announced that in January 2018, Europe-Morocco transport specialist, GLT, which is the leading operator of the gateway between the ports of Algeria and Tangier, is taking over. GEFCO, a leader in the supply chain industry in Morocco, aims to double the workforce in the region to support its future growth.
