CONTAINERS & REEFERS

Containers are one of the main activities for the Port of Marseille Fos. Present in both harbours (Marseilles and Fos), it has experienced sustained growth, recently tripling the capacity of its terminals and restructuring its operations, which are now entirely private sector run.

 
Marseille Fos is a genuine market port for developing the container activity, benefiting from efficient massified hinterland services, and can also offer real opportunities for intersecting lines and developing transhipment.

MARSEILLE FOS

  • Natural Southern gateway to Western European markets.
  • At the crossroads of the world's maritime routes.
  • Hinterland linked by massified modes of transport with a reduced carbon footprint.
