In total, the French company received four awards, including also “the prize of excellence for compliance with customs procedures”; “the prize of excellence for business volumes under the single transit permit” for rail-road, which allows, thanks to a single document, to channel goods in transit from the port of Douala to stores and external customs clearance areas, regardless of the means of transport used. Bolloré also got the first prize in the category of manifest registration, awarded to its subsidiary Socopao.
