Dunkerque confirmed as multimodal port

263 Dunkirk Multimodal Port ENPRESS RELEASE

March 19. 2015: The share of alternative transport modes at Dunkerque-Port has reached 49%, an increase of 1% over 2013.

The modal share of rail transport is 30%. This mode naturally relies on historic sectors such as coal and ore, but now offers promising prospects in combined transport, as can be seen in the doubled frequency of the container shuttle to and from the Greater Paris area (Bonneuil).

Grain procurements have also soared in recent months, extending the hinterland of the Port of Dunkirk to new markets. In consolidating their overland traffic at Dunkirk, shippers are making use of the largest maritime infrastructures available.

Waterway transport also continues to develop, with a modal share up one point at 16%. The main traffic concerned is grain (1.19 million tonnes), a sector in which the modal share is as high as 52%.

Combined transport is growing too, and should experience a new boost in 2015 with the deployment of new services for northern France. The volumes carried by the Nord Ports Shuttle (NPS), which started up in November 2013, became permanent in 2014.

Finally, pipeline transport now accounts for 3% of traffic, in particular since liquid bulk operators have connected to the Trapil national network.

The opening of the LNG terminal should contribute to the reinforcement of this mode in coming years.

Including the traffic of the maritime industrial area, rail traffic reached 13.4 million tonnes in 2014, strengthening the Port's position as the leading freight hub in France. Waterway traffic exceeded 3.0 million tonnes for the first time in 2014, marking Dunkirk more than ever as the foremost inland waterway port of the Nord-Pas de Calais region.
