Ports

At 328 MT (excluding bunkering and provisioning), total trafἀc through French ports in 2012 was down by 4% on the previous year (341.7 MT)[1].This decline was accounted for mainly by a fall in bulk liquid traffic (143 MT), essentially petroleum products (–9%), linked to the closure of refineries.

However container trafἀc rose by 5% to reach 4 million TEU, a sign of the positive effect of reform in the large sea ports of Le Havre and Marseille in particular, while general cargo was down slightly (1%).Passenger trafἀc in continental France fell by 3.6% to a total of 27.9 million passengers. By volume, the number of cruise ship passengers rose by 13% to pass the 4 million mark. Mediterranean seaboard ports absorbed 86% of this traffic, the same as in 2011.

Until 2012 France's maritime policy for its ports was based on three complementary pillars: 

- reform of the autonomous seaports begun through legislation in 2008, which has transformed seven of them in continental France into Grands Ports Maritimes (Large Sea Ports); this process was completed in 2012 in the overseas departments with the creation on 1st January 2013 of the four Large Sea Ports of Guadeloupe, Guyane, La Réunion and Martinique, 

- the transfer of port railways to the port authorities, which gives them more opportunity to expand into high volume freight transport and to develop short-haul port railway operators such as OFP Atlantique, 

- government backing in the form of an investment programme for 2009-2013.

From 2013, the national strategy for French ports is aimed at winning back market share. It is divided into three main components: logistics performance, support for industry and re-industrialisation, and sustainable development

French commercial sea ports handle around 85% of France's external maritime trade by volume and 66% by value.They can be divided into:

•     ports operated by the State, with the eleven large sea ports in continental France and overseas,

•     decentralised commercial ports and ἀshing ports:  around forty ports under regional administrations (some since 1983, others since 2007), the great majority of which are operated by chambers of commerce. These ports handle 63.3 MT of goods, nearly 77.2% of passenger traffic and around 200,000 tonnes of fish products,

•     autonomous ports in the Overseas Territories (Polynesia and New Caledonia).

The authorities administering these ports are federated in the UPF (Union des Ports de France) which represents them at national and European level.

¹ Sources : Bilan annuel des ports et des voies navigables, 2011, 2012. The total goods trafἀc at French continental sea ports was given as 352.9 MT, but for a different number of ports.

Association Internationale Villeset Ports

The AIVP, a global network of port cities, was founded in France in the port city of Le Havre in 1988. The association's membership consists of more than 200 ports, cities and public organisations or bodies. The worldwide network of the AIVP covers nearly 50 countries. The active members of the AIVP all share the same objective: to improve the dialogue between cities and ports and to encourage ports to share their experience.

Union des Ports de France

L'Union des Ports de France (UPF) is the trade association representing French port operators.Its 46 members comprise the administering bodies of French commercial and ἀshing ports and some fish auction markets in continental France and the overseas departments and territories: Large Sea Ports, the ports of Paris and Strasbourg, chambers of commerce, semi-public companies and port operating companies.

The Association has three missions:

- to represent French port establishments in labour negotiations in the sector in liaison with the UNIM (the French association of cargo handling companies and terminal operators) and the trade unions, mainly for negotiating the uniἀed collective agreement for port workers and cargo handlers,

- to uphold the interests of French ports with French government authorities, European authorities and the media, particularly within the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO),

- to operate networks for sharing good practice and exchanging experience in the various activities involved in port operation. Merged with the French Ports Development Association (ADPF) since 1st January 2013, the UPF has established three interchange forums:

- An interchange forum for port professionals bringing together the professionals involved in the development of port trade.

- An interchange forum for decentralised port authorities.

- An interchange forum for the Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen of the supervisory boards of Large Sea Ports.

The advantages of French ports

An exceptional seaboard and an ideal position for providing rapid service to the greater part of Western Europe. A system of large sea ports centrally positioned in Europe, with excellent links to main roads, motorways and railways as well as to the main navigable waterways (Seine, Rhône).

A network of decentralised ports which are valuable assets for promoting regional economic development and which complement the network of large sea ports;

A strategic geographical position for handling the production and distribution of goods imported or exported by Europe:

- facing the Channel and North Sea, Le Havre is the gateway to the “Seine Axis” along with Rouen and Paris, thanks to the GIE HAROPA (an economic interest grouping of the Paris Seine-Normandy ports). Together with Calais and Dunkirk, it is one of the first large North European ports of call for imports,

- situated on the Atlantic seaboard, the large sea ports of Nantes - Saint-Nazaire, La Rochelle and Bordeaux are the entry points for large international trade flows. These are now organised in a system of Atlantic inter-port cooperation. Brest also has this role of general cargo port while at the same time being the most important French site for civil ship repair,

- on the Mediterranean coast, Marseille-Fos, the largest port in France and indeed the Mediterranean, is situated at an important meeting point of trade routes and acts as the gateway to the Mediterranean,

- France's overseas ports in the Indian Ocean, in Polynesia, in New-Caledonia and the Caribbean are entry points into the EU and operate within overseas clusters being developed there: four of them, those in Martinique, Guadeloupe, Guiana and La Réunion were transformed into Large Sea Ports (GPM) in 2013.

Added to these advantages are:

- exceptionally good access enabling the ports to accommodate the largest vessels to serve the hubs, such as 18,000 TEU container ships, 400,000 tonne tankers and large LNG carriers of 270,000 m3 (QMax) as well as the most impressive cruise liners,

- high quality infrastructures, including berths and terminals,

- modern efficient equipment,

- reserves of land still available,

- areas reserved for storage and distribution logistics operations,

- an interconnection of regular shipping routes, short sea shipping and waterway services ,

-  effocient road and bulk transport services (rail, navigable waterways),

-  dynamic port communities with enterprises providing efficient services for ships (piloting, towing and mooring) and the handling of goods,

- advanced computerised trading platforms within port communities, providing efἀcient high value-added logistics services, with e-customs services about to be introduced for each port,

- high standards of safety, security, sustainability and environmental protection.

 Several major projects are under way

They encompass:

- extensions of capacity: completion of Port 2000 at Le Havre, completion of the new container terminals at Fos 2XL and a study for a gas terminal, a project to extend the port of Calais (Calais Port 2015) designed from a perspective of collaboration with the ports of the Nord-Pas de Calais Region, excavation of the Baltic and Pacific harbour basins at Dunkirk, deepening of the approach channel to Rouen over the 120 km distance from the mouth of the Seine to Rouen (scheduled for 2012-2016); at Nantes-Saint Nazaire, works to accommodate QMax (LNG) vessels, extension of the container terminal and preparation of marine renewable energy zones; the project to extend Port La Nouvelle; and the project at Brest to stabilise and extend the polder for the marine renewable energy industry coupled with the deepening of the access channels to the commercial port. 

- the construction of new terminals, especially an LNG terminal at Dunkirk; construction of the new Grattequina terminal for aggregates and wind turbine traffic at Bordeaux.

- the development of new systems of organisation at port terminals to increase their productivity and make French ports more attractive to private operators and investors.

- the improvement of land links to high volume transport (rail and waterway): multimodal terminal and the Emerhode project at Le Havre, the combined transport terminal at Marseille, development of La Rochelle port railway operator Maritime Rail Services, cooperation between sea ports and inland ports;…

- the development of short sea shipping routes and motorways of the sea, especially the Nantes-Gijón route opened in September 2010. 

- the development of synergies among industrial ἀrms to ensure the long-term development of the VASCO project initiated by the Port of Marseille/Fos to produce solutions for CO2 capture, storage and treatment through a programme of R&D. 

- the creation of a single e-customs service to simplify and standardise all declaration procedures for ships in line with the Community Directive providing for its introduction by 1st January 2015.
