Logistics firm, Red Star Express Plc, has said it will be expanding its operations to Benin Republic from August.
The company said the move was in accordance with its vision to provide logistics solutions for businesses across West Africa.
“The opening of the company’s office in Cotonou, the capital of Benin Republic, is in line with an expansion drive that has seen the company open offices in Burkina Faso and Niger Republic. Red Star Express has been operating in Niger Republic since 2016 while the branch in Burkina Faso opened in November last year,” the firm said in a statement on Tuesday.
The Managing Director, Red Star, Dr Olusola Obabori, disclosed that the development was in line with the company’s vision of increasing its business prospects in West Africa.
“We are a company that is focused on growth, and the expansion into Benin is part of that growth. We are delighted to take this step in boosting our business” he added.
Obabori explained that there were plans to expand into more West African states as the company looked to connect different economies in the region.
“Our business is about connecting different economies; especially as regards trade and commerce. By being in countries such as Benin Republic, Burkina Faso and Niger Republic, we will be at the forefront of economic development; particularly in the West African region,” he said.
