Port Of Bayonne Invests In Intermodality

Wednesday, 05 February 2020 | 00:00

France’s Port of Bayonne aims to take a step forward in intermodality by implementing a cross-border door-to-door intermodal service.

The multipurpose port has teamed up with Hutchison Ports’ BEST terminal in Spain to offer this new intermodal solution to importers and exporters in the Southwest of France, through BEST’s logistics operator, Synergy, and the transport company Gimex, based in Navarra, Spain.

Both partners will attend an event at the Bayonne Chamber of Commerce on 20 February to identify potential future users and adjust the proposal of service offer to the needs of logistics professionals on both sides of the border.

The Port of Bayonne, which has three terminals, is expected to strengthen its logistics offer by using container transport from/to all over the world. This is an environmentally sustainable solution, thanks to the combined use of rail and maritime services to limit the impact of the carbon footprint generated.

Synergy offers key experience in intermodal transport. Some of the operator’s success cases are its service from BEST to Pamplona, with one daily departure, and the one from BEST to Miranda de Ebro (Burgos), which already has four departures per week, having been in service for a little over a year.

The added value that these services provide to their clients are: savings of up to 11 days of maritime transit time, offering direct services from Barcelona; and also reliability in the face of the current situation of uncertainty that French ports have been experiencing for several weeks.
