HAROPA to attain new highs in 2018
With a 6 per cent rise in overall seaborne trade
(92.64 million tonnes) and over 15 per cent in container traffic, HAROPA recorded the best figures among Northeuropean ports for 2017. For the first time in its history, HAROPA handled 3 million teus over the year on import and export, proof of its customers’ confidence.
HAROPA has accommodated since April 2017 the three alliances, 2M, Ocean Alliance and
The Alliance, grouping together all shipping lines on transatlantic and Asia-europe trades. In addition, The Alliance has just announced the arrival, in April 2018, of a new Asia-europe service placing HAROPA as the first port of call on import, which means that further traffic rise is expected. The rising strength of the multimodal terminal in Le Havre in 2017, with 145,000 teus handled, is a support for the development of new rail and river services.
