Integrated into an urban setting with a heavy infrastructure, economic development, a large network of urban services, concern for the environment and quality.... what makes for a competitive urban port on the Seine axis?
The Ports de Paris has 70 river ports strung out along the Seine, of which 6 are true platforms. The Port of Gennevilliers, with its 6 harbour docks, constitutes the flagship. As a major depot for containers in transit from Rouen and Le Havre, it is part of the supply system of Greater Paris, at a time when numerous developments in river transport are taking place.
As a pinta-modal platform (400 hectares, 20 million tonnes of traffic, 270 businesses), the Port of Gennevilliers is having to take an increasingly active role in the process of developing eco-friendly urban logistics. Through its connection to the city, nestled in a loop of the Seine, it is today a multi-functional territory. How does it see its future? To which logic(s) of governance does it subscribe? These questions will be dealt with during this day on the waterfront.
