French-based Bolloré Logistics recently launched a new river transport solution service that will run from Le Havre to Bonneuil-Sur-Marne via Gennevilliers, close to the capital, Paris.

This new river shuttle service solution was devised and implemented with flexibility in mind and provides an attractive alternative to road transport. Bolloré Logistics customers located in the consumer basin of Paris will benefit from this new delivery system.

The company intends to offer even more benefits to their customers with cost management being optimized by using the best port franchises the Seine corridor has to offer.

Bolloré Logistics Director of the Normandy Region, Laurent Foloppe said, “The river corridor solution can help optimize the costs of parking import containers in Le Havre. Our goal is to offer our customers a flexible solution that reduces these costs.”

The new river shuttle will operate every Wednesday sailing between the Le Havre multimodal terminal and the Bonneuil-Sur-Marne located in the southwest area of the French capital. Additional stops for the ports of Gennevilliers and Rouen will also be offered.

This river shuttle service enables Bolloré Logistics to offer 5,000 TEUs to the ports of Paris and is part of larger initiative to develop seine valley and surrounding areas.

Managing Director of HAROPA-Ports de Paris and Vice-President of HAROPA, Régine Bréhier said, “This new shuttle confirms Bolloré Logistics drive to place the waterway (Seine) at the heart of a transport plan connecting the Greater Paris’ consumer markets to more than 700 ports worldwide.”

He also commented on serving the Bonneuil terminal: “Located on the east side of Paris, close to the major logistics bases of the Greater Paris region, the terminal is trimodal, connected to rail and river. It provides a final link in the chain and is strategically placed as close as possible to consumer markets”
