Mali Borders Re-Open
On July 3rd, the Leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) lifted the economic and financial sanctions imposed on Mali earlier this year. ECOWAS Commission President Jean Claude Kassi Brou told a news conference that the sanctions will be lifted immediately. Borders with Mali will reopen and regional diplomats will return to Bamako.

Due to its strategic location, Dakar port is the natural hub to serve Mali and before the sanctions, OMA moved regular traffic from Dakar, particularly to the key gold mining area of Kayes as well as the capital Bamako. We also arrange transit from cargoes from Abidjan port in Côte d’Ivoire to Bamako, Sikasso and Koutiala.
OMA Logistics offers a one-stop road freight solution to Mali for projects, containers or LCL including:
- All border clearance formalities as required
- Customs clearance in Mali
- Clearance and delivery in Mali from Bamako airport
We are delighted that these routes from both Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire are open again.
