Bolloré barge deliveries
Bolloré Logistics is launching its new river transport solution between Le Havre and Paris.
The new river service – which officially starts today (28 February) and runs between Le Havre and Bonneuilsur-Marne via Gennevilliers, near Paris – is part of Bolloré Logistics’ drive to develop “innovative and eco-friendly solutions to meet customers’ needs”.
A “last mile” service, primarily operated by trucks running on natural gas, will round out this new logistics solution.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today, Bolloré Logistics said that it also wants to offer its customers the benefits of optimized cost management by taking advantage of the best port franchises offered by the Seine corridor.
“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.
