The last board of directors of SNTL has painted a positive picture, after more than three years of efforts to reposition the national company as a major player in the transport and logistics sector.

The National Company of Transport and Logistics has been able, between 2019 and 2020, to improve a series of activity indicators, as noted at the Board of Directors of the company, held on September 16, under the chairmanship of the Minister of supervision at the end of his term, Abdelkader Amara. At this meeting, the focus was on the accounts for the last two years.

Similarly, the general assembly of the company held a meeting by video conference for the approval of the company's accounts for the same period, which highlighted "the importance of holding the board of directors and the general assembly of the company that closes so many years of continuous efforts to reform management and improve the financial situation of the company and opens promising prospects in the fields of transport and logistics," as evidenced by the balance sheet drawn up by the Department of Trustees.

The crucial step on the management of bus stations has been, for its part, decisive, without forgetting the "model of strategic rapprochement between TangerMed and Marsa Morocco," says the same source.

The report also shows the important work that has been done over the past two years by the Ministry of Finance and Transport to pave the way for the conclusion of the contract program between the State and SNTL.

A call was issued during the holding of the Board of Directors, so that the components of the national company "can examine in a rapid manner the conclusion of the contract-program with a view to adopting it as soon as possible.

The contract between the State and SNTL will be, in fact, likely to draw new objectives for the national company which aims to strengthen the achievements of the last three financial years.Several projects will be initiated to adapt the second wave of logistics planning to the needs of the regions.

After the validation of six guidance plans for the regions of Casablanca-Settat, Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima, the Oriental region, Laayoune and Dakhla-Oued Eddahab, it is currently the architectural and technical studies relating to the development of the 1st tranche of regional logistics projects that focus attention.

In addition to the thorny issue of land clearance estimated at 1,089 ha, the State and the regions will also have to address jointly on priority projects.

Note that a study of the impact of the funding process on beneficiary companies over the past 3 years will be finalized, in addition to the launch of the standardization program and that on the management tools for training in the sector.
