HAROPA PORT's partner ports

Port de l'Aube - Nogent sur Seine, partnership signed in April 2013. Port de l'Aube is a reference site for the river service of the Champagne hinterland. Strengthened by the regional dynamism and presence of private ports belonging to major cereal groups (Soufflet, Vivescia etc), the Union Nogentaise de Manutention (UNM - Nogent Handling Union) ensures the transport of solid bulk goods to Nogent sur Seine for the cereal and metallurgy sectors, etc. UNM is also developing container and heavy lift logistics.

Port of Gron - Yonne en Seine, partnership signed on 10/06/2013. Located near Sens (100km south of Paris), the Gron port platform was created in 2010 by the CCI of Yonne and connects Burgundy to the sea. In 2013, CCI 89 and the Sénonais Community of Communes created Yonne en Seine ("YES") to support the development of this infrastructure and integrate it into the HAROPA system. The partnership was signed in Rouen to mark the 2013 Armada.
"YES" is dedicated to: 

  • Promote the Northern Yonne and Burgundy, in particular in synergy with HAROPA PORT ;
  • Represent the port of Gron and the Burgundy Region within HAROPA PORT ;
  • Support the development of business parks and infrastructure linked to the Ports of Paris ;
  • Prospect for, welcome and support new companies.

The Logiyonne operator, set up when the port was created by CCI 89 (and which is still one of its main shareholders), facilitates import/export operations for many local manufacturers, relying on regular and mixed river links (containers and heavy loads), particularly with the port of Le Havre.

Port Angot - St Aubin les Elbeuf, partnership signed in September 2013.  Located between Rouen and Paris, the consular river port of St Aubin les Elbeuf handles 400,000 tonnes of traffic (mainly in bulk) and has development prospects to eventually accommodate 800,000 tonnes. This equipment supports the activity of a local economic fabric boosted by vast industrial and logistics activity zones and the proximity of numerous quarries.

Dieppe - Close to regional companies, the Port of Dieppe is a centre of excellence for maritime transport and trade, as well as for marine renewable energies. It handles 1.8 Mt of maritime traffic with regular cross-Channel freight and passenger traffic. It also offers a range of tailor-made services, particularly for niche traffic. Additional activities: fishing and pleasure boating.

Ports Normands Associés - The ports of Caen-Ouistreham and Cherbourg are grouped within the framework of PORTS NORMANDS ASSOCIES (PNA - Associated Normandy Ports) and thus constitute the 11th largest French port complex. PNA handles traffic of nearly 5 million tonnes of cargo and 1.5 million passengers.
Caen-Ouistreham and Cherbourg constitute 2 complementary ports: the first is organised into terminals around a 15 km long canal linking Caen to the sea, while the second, a deep-water port, can accommodate vessels with a draught of 14 metres.
Concerning conventional freight, the port of Caen-Ouistreham relies on the maritime needs of the Caen agglomeration and, more generally, of the Basse-Normandie Region. It is the place where cereals are exported and handles the various types of traffic necessary for its hinterland: wood, petcoke, scrap metal, salt, cast iron…
Cherbourg is positioned as a hub for bulk goods (particularly coal) and certain niche activities (heavy or bulky loads, dangerous goods…). It also supports shipbuilding and ship repair activities. Other specifics: its 24-hour accessibility and its rare nautical features.
The cruise sector (60,000 to 90,000 passengers per year) contributes to the diversification and enrichment of maritime activities in both ports, particularly Cherbourg. Fishing and yachting complement the activity of the commercial port.

Fécamp, partnership signed on 4/04/2014. Located in the heart of a vast logistics area, the port of Fécamp plays a decisive role in accommodating coastal trading vessels. Its purpose is to meet customized needs for solid and liquid bulk materials, various goods in batches and heavy loads, while offering quality services. Fécamp, a departmental port, has a potential for maritime traffic of 500,000 tonnes of goods.


SHEMA - A mixed economy company with a regional dimension specializing in economic development & planning, SHEMA is developing a business park covering a total area of more than 300 hectares. A'Park Calvados Honfleur is one example, and is very complementary to the HAROPA PORT offer. SHEMA has taken up the challenge of the Seine axis and is promoting innovative, competitive and sustainable logistics.
