Norlink Ports

Stand number: 6025


Norlink Ports has some twenty maritime and multimodal hubs in the Hauts-de-France Region.

Since December 2017, the association chaired by Bruno Fontaine has welcomed about fifteen additional associate members, including transport operators, port terminal managers, federations, associations, public authorities, etc.

The arrival of Getlink / Eurotunnel within Norlink Ports, concludes in particular the alliance between a group of four ports on the Opal Coast, namely Dunkirk, Calais, Boulogne-sur-Mer and the dry port of Eurotunnel.

The association works in particular to promote port infrastructures in the Region by developing synergies between maritime and inland ports. It is working on the development of new alternative intra-regional transport schemes, in direct connection with the Seine-Nord Europe Canal project.

The work by Norlink Ports helps to jointly promote the port potential of the Region and to reinforce its positioning one of logistical and tri-modal excellence.

The association fits perfectly within the framework of the decisive policy expressed by the government to create a French port strategy by corridor, the north corridor being one of the three cornerstones of that policy.
