OT Africa Line to be acquired by the Bollore Group

Friday, September 17, 1999
The Bollore Group has signed a contract with the aim of acquiring OT Africa Line, the British shipping line, and its landside network in Africa. The object of this move is to reinforce the Group's position in the Europe-Africa trade with the important contribution that OTAL can make, particularly in the traffic flows from the U.K., Germany and Benelux to the anglophone markets of Ghana and Nigeria. The OTAL organization will remain independent from Delmas, a Bollore Group liner shipping subsidiary, although potential economies in matters of common interest such ships and containers will be researched and evaluated. Moreover OTAL's management team will remain based in London. In Africa, where OTAL has established significant landside operations, the Bollore Group will endeavor to maintain the autonomy of this network in order to continue to serve its client lines independently as it did in the past when it acquired the SAGA network.
