Construction Begins On Phase 3 Of Côte D’Ivoire’s Agility Logistics Park
The expansion will triple the warehouse space available.
Construction has begun on the third phase of the Agility Logistics Park in Abidjan, Côte D’Ivoire.
Geoffrey White, CEO of Agility Africa said in a statement on LinkedIn that the project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
The expansion will offer an additional 33,000 square metres (m2) of move-in ready units and triple the warehouse space.
The existing park covers 470,000m2 and is fully leased to tenants such as Compagnie de Distribution de Cote d’Ivoire (CDCI), which operates supermarkets in the country.
CDCI established its main distribution centre at the park in 2020. At the time, White said: “We believe that the provision of international standard warehouses in Africa for storage, distribution and light manufacturing is one of the fundamental building blocks necessary for economic growth. The Agility Warehouse Parks enable companies, whether multinationals ... or small and medium enterprises, to access quality infrastructure easily, quickly and cost-effectively.”
Agility currently has logistics parks in five African countries: Cote D’Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria.
