In so doing, the group is expanding its multimodal service offering along the Seine corridor and underlines the port of Rouen's capacity to develop combined transport.

On 3 October FluvioFeeder Armement started a new weekly railway service between the TCMD container terminal in Rouen (managed by its subsidiary SOMAP) and the terminal in Bonneuil sur Marne east of Paris, managed by Bonneuil Multimodal Terminal (BTM), used by T3M, a specialist in
combined transport.

The interest of this new weekly rail service lies in combining it with the river service already provided by Marfret: the new rail shuttle, aligned with the commercial operations of the freighter the "LYDIA" will primarily transport imports, and return flows potentially for exports with empty containers from Bonneuil to Rouen (Drop Off), plus domestic trade.
