Bolloré Logistics inaugurates its new multimodal hub in Le Havre
September 23, 2017: Bolloré Logistics inaugurated its new multimodal hub on the Logistics Park of Pont de Normandie 2 (PLPN2), in the heart of France's leading foreign trade port. With this new site located near the multimodal terminal, Bolloré Logistics offers all the solutions to manage logistics flows throughout the Seine Valley.
Today, Bolloré Logistics plays a key role in the logistical development of the Seine axis, where the company has four branches and runs a network of more than 700 employees. The 24,000 m2 warehouse built near the multimodal terminal reinforces Le Havre as a major port logistics hub. With the opening of this second logistics site in the Logistics Park area of the Pont de Normandie 2, Bolloré Logistics now has in Normandy a total of 110,000 m2 of warehouses, of which 39,000 m2 in Le Havre.
"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," says Laurent Foloppe, director of the Normandy Region.
Bolloré Logistics' strategy is to invest in the Hubs by positioning itself on the world's major trading hubs, Singapore, Dubai, Miami.
"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,” said Henri Le Gouis, CEO Europe of Bolloré Logistics.
Also known as "Green Hub", the multimodal Hub is fully in line with the Group's CSR approach and is in perfect harmony with the environmental values of Bolloré Transport & Logistics.
Normandy is a connected and strategic region for transport and logistics activities. Bolloré Transport & Logistics has demonstrated a deep conviction in the potential development of the Normandy region. Bolloré Transport & Logistics not only invested in the Logistics Park of the Pont de Normandie but also in the conversion of the former refinery of Petit-Couronne into an oil storage depot and the modernisation of the container terminal in Rouen.
