Sebastien Clamorgan: logistics and port management among Venia International’s initiatives
With a particular focus on Africa and the Middle East, logistics and port management play an important role among the activities of the global consulting and investment firm Venia International. Indeed, thanks to its commitment to supporting the creation of joint ventures in the MENA region, Sebastien Clamorgan‘s firm undertook many projects throughout its business history. As an indirect shareholder, Venia International supported the transport company Trucklog LTD in improving quality and safety across transport businesses, helping the company to provide efficient services, and, as a consequence, to become a leader among the transport and logistics solutions providers in the Sub-Saharan Africa. Registered in 2015, Trucklog LTD started its operations in Nigeria (specifically in the area of Calabar) in 2017, with the purpose of catering to the cement manufacturer Lafarge Africa Plc. Just 18 months after starting its activities, the transport company was already Lafarge’s best performer – with regard to revenue and safety – and turned out to be the best transporter in the east side of Nigeria during the period 2018-2019. Venia International is as well active in the field of port management: indeed, one recent project is the Badagry MegaPort and Free Zone, which is aimed at developing a new, ultra-modern port in Nigeria, in order to create a platform for regional and national development. Some of the most successful companies in Nigeria have been brought together to achieve the results set by the project, and, for its part, the global consulting and investment firm Venia International played the role of deal maker, broker and representative of a stakeholder’ interests. Developed through a partnership between private entities, and overseen by the Nigerian Port Authorities, the project is one of the port management activities in which the firm participates and shows the relevance of Sebastien Clamorgan‘s firm in the port management sector in Africa.
