On 7 June, Bolloré Logistics signed a Memorandum of Understanding with FLYING WHALES.

The two parties made their partnership official at the Breakbulk exhibition in Rotterdam, agreeing to use the FLYING WHALES LCA60T solution to transport exceptionally heavy or oversized loads.

The LCA60T is an airship that Bolloré Logistics intends to use within the scope of its logistics projects, for lifting and/or transporting abnormal loads of up to 60 tonnes.

The maiden flight of the first LCA60T is planned for the end of 2025. It will be able to deliver to remote locations and areas that difficult to access via conventional modes of transport.

Furthermore, the LCA60T will be produced in France at the FLYING WHALES production plant in Gironde.

FLYING WHALES will also benefit from a plant in Quebec for the Americas, and a third one in the Asia-Pacific region.

As part of its “Powering Sustainable Logistics” programme, Bolloré Logistics has committed to decarbonising Scopes 1, 2 & 3.

With FLYING WHALES game changing solution, Bolloré Logistics will be able to offer its customers a wider range of carbon-reduced transport modes.

FLYING WHALES’ mission is simple: to provide reliable transport and avoid transshipment, while keeping costs down and minimizing environmental impact.

The exceptional capacity of LCA60T enables Bolloré Logistics to offer its customers an innovative, less carbon-intensive, economical and safe alternative.

“We are particularly proud of this agreement with FLYING WHALES. Deliveries by LCA60T will enable us to provide our customers with an extensive choice of vehicles in order to decarbonise the transport of the goods they entrust us with.” said Philippe Lejeune, Energy & Projects Director – Bolloré Logistics Europe.
