Bolloré Logistics has opened a new multimodal hub on the Logistics Park of Pont de Normandie 2 (PLPN2) – in the heart of France’s leading foreign trade port.
The French logistics firm says with this new site (pictured above) located near the multimodal terminal, it offers all the solutions to manage flows throughout the Seine Valley.
The 24,000 square metre warehouse built near the multimodal terminal it says reinforces Le Havre as a major port logistics hub. Bolloré Logistics now has 110,000 square metres of warehouse space in Normandy, with 39,000 square metres in Le Havre.
Director of the Normandy Region, Laurent Foloppe says: “As a partner of HAROPA, Bolloré Logistics benefits from exceptional visibility on the three ports on the seine trade – Le Havre Rouen Paris – and an attractive and diversified offer in the treatment of international flows.
“Our platforms connected to all modes of transport – sea, air, road, rail, barges are designed to support the growth and sustainable development of our clients in the Port of Le Havre and the Normandy region.”
Bolloré Logistics’ strategy is to invest in the hubs by positioning itself on the world’s major trading hubs, such as Singapore, Dubai, Miami, which allows Logistics Le Havre to draw more flows and manage global logistics activities and supply chain of its customers.
Chief executive officer for Europe, Henri Le Gouis adds: “Beyond being a maritime platform where we operate more than 10,000 consolidations per year or a warehouse offering all the services of storage, repackaging and value-added services, this new hub is indeed a multimodal platform intended to supply all the Greater Paris in which we wished to invest.”
