The valley of the Seine is a major space of circulation of goods, which must, however, deal with important regional competition. Created in June 2021, Haropa Port aims to strengthen the attractiveness of this valley.

A major circulation space between Le Havre and Paris

since June 1, the three most important ports of the Seine, Paris, Rouen and Le Havre, have grouped together in the same establishment, Haropa Port, become the Fifth North European port set. The objective is to form a European port system in the field of industry, logistics and tourism. Many logistical sites are developing, including near the harbor of Le Havre, in Rouen, or on the port of Limay, where IKEA will build an important logistics center.

A position to defend in a competitive regional context

The port of the Le Havre has difficulty staying competitive in the major north-European ports, especially since the postponement of the goods by rail and river transport is to be improved. The construction of the Seine-Nord Canal, making it possible to connect directly to the port of Antwerp to the basin of the Paris region, has feared a bypass of the Seine Valley and Haropa Port, for the benefit of Flemish ports. The merger of the ports of Le Havre, Rouen and Paris into a single entity is one of the answers made.

Paris-Le Havre. And in the middle flows the Seine ...

benefiting from an investment program of € 1,450 billion over five years, Haropa Port generates a maritime and river traffic of more than 130 million tonnes, and its activities account for about 160,000 Jobs. Its managers hope that the capacity of the Seine in the field of fluvial transport will triple. The railway network, passenger and freight is, meanwhile, saturated. Electrification of the serking-Gisors section should increase freight capabilities, waiting for the new Paris-Normandy line project. The first section was not to be completed before 2035, distant delays that raise concerns about the actual realization of the project.
