Bolloré to offer new river transport service from Le Harve to Paris

Bolloré Transport & Logistics and supply chain services company Czarnikow are collaborating to support Bolloré’s sustainable development in East Africa through the VIVE Sustainable Supply Programme.

Bolloré Logistics is launching a new river transport solution today, with the commissioning of a river unit service running between Le Havre and Bonneuil-sur-Marne via Gennevilliers, near Paris.

Bolloré Logistics will be reducing its share of road transport in favour of a barge service, allowing it to ship deliveries to its customers located in the Paris consumer basin. A last mile service will round out this new logistics solution.

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

The Bolloré Logistics motor barge will provide a shuttle service every Wednesday, running between the multimodal terminal of Le Havre and Bonneuil-sur-Marne to the south west of Paris, offering additional stops at the ports of Gennevilliers and Rouen. This solution allows Bolloré Logistics to offer a capacity of more than 5,000 TEUs to Paris’ Ports. The motor barge will depart loaded from the two Parisian ports to Rouen and Le Havre.
