HAROPA Port launches trimodal hub project

HAROPA Port is developing the Port of Bruyères-sur-Oise to create a new multimodal platform, 40 kilometres from Paris.

Following the allocation of this site through a call for projects launched in 2022, the winning bidder, MEDLOG, the logistics arm of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), intends to establish a trimodal logistics platform dedicated to serving a regional hinterland, France’s leading consumer basin, and a national hinterland via the rail connection.

MEDLOG will take ownership of the site on 1 October and begin construction immediately, with commissioning expected for the end of the third quarter of 2024.

This trimodal logistics platform will handle a variety of commodities and flows, including containers, bulk (cereals, aggregates, etc.), exchange bodies, heavy packages, and so on.

Furthermore, the trimodal intends to provide export-standard reconditioning of food-grade and refrigerated containers, with the ability to keep full refrigerated containers at a constant temperature.

According to HAROPA, these containers can be reused, either for local export placement by lorry or for supplying empty containers to a shortage export location by rail.

In May, the Port of Montreal and HAROPA Port renewed their first international cooperation agreement.

A month later, HAROPA Port registered 1.25 million TEU.
