MARSEILLE FOS, A RELIABLE PORT

NO STRIKE FOR THE PAST 6 YEARS

Since the implementation of the port reform in June 2011, all cargo terminals at the Port of Marseille Fos are run by private terminals operators who employ, under single command, all cargo handlers, dockers and crane operators.
Since that date, no local strike has taken place in any of the cargo terminals of the Port of Marseille Fos.


A COMPETITIVE PORT

CARGO HANDLING, A COMPETITIVE ASSET

The single command on the terminals has remodeled the handling of ship calls: increased productivity due to workforce reliability, single management of all personnel, and preventive maintenance of the equipment.
The Port of Marseille Fos achieves performance levels in line with European standards, while container traffic is experiencing growth (+2% at Fos in 2016) thanks to the ramp-up of the two new Fos terminals.

Maritime performance
Average volume handled per day: 3,377 TEU in 2016.
Fluidity of ship calls: 93% of the ships can dock without any waiting period.
Lift-on/lift-off productivity: 29 moves per hour, per crane (average productivity); 29 to 45 moves per hour, per crane (maximum productivity of high-performance cranes).


A SECURED PORT

A SECURED PORT CHAIN

The Port of Marseille Fos deploys a security system which ensures a risk-controlled environment for cargo.
In compliance with the ISPS (International Ship and Port Security) code, access to the terminals is strictly controlled and specialised security agents regularly patrol the sites. The port’s waters are monitored by a coast guard platoon.
Moreover, 75% of the firms operating in the port have been awarded the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) by French Customs, confirming the reliability of their logistics chains.
Lastly, with the AP+ system, 100% of information flows are secure.


AN EFFICIENT PORT

Smooth flow of cargo on the docks

As a reflection of the port’s competitiveness, transit times for incoming and outgoing vessels have greatly improved due to the commitment of private players (freight forwarders and terminal operators) and state services.

Cargo handling performance
Average length of stay of a container at the import terminal: 4 days (average time) [KPI 2016].
Time between the issuing of the dock receipt (VAQ) and the delivery of the exit authorisation (BAS):
2 days (average time) [KPI 2016].
Time between the delivery of the exit authorisation (BAS) and the date of removal: 2 days (average time) [KPI 2016].
Average length of stay of a container at the export terminal: 1 days (average time) [KPI 2016].


A PAPERLESS PORT

AN INTERCONNECTED PORT CHAIN

The Port of Marseille Fos has an AP+ Cargo Community System which connects all players in the logistics chain.
Through the automation of procedures and their dematerialisation, this chain operates in real time and is highly reliable.
Cargo is now tracked via the single AP+ desk, doing away with paper documents and travel across the terminals.
This automation of procedures, including customs procedures, speeds up the flow of cargo on the docks.

Cargo handling performance
Average customs clearance time per declaration: 5 minutes.
Opening of the AP+ system to carriers in 2014: extension of cargo traceability, improved communication between players


A MULTIMODAL PORT

MARSEILLE FOS SERVES ITS HINTERLAND VIA THE RIVER

Fos terminals have a competitive edge over other Mediterranean terminals. They are directly linked to the Rhône river and can thus serve their hinterland via this inland waterway.

3.-Carte_port_multi-1024x819

The port particularly relies on the network of Medlink ports which comprises 9 trimodal platforms along the Rhône-Saône axis (Pagny, Châlon, Mâcon, Villefranche-sur-Saône, Lyon, Vienne-Sud/ Salaise-Sablons, Valence, Avignon-Le Pontet, and Arles). Two inland waterway operators – Logirhône and Greenmodal – offer 11 inland services per week along that waterway system.

RIVER LINKS
Châlon-sur-Saône: 1 per week
Mâcon: 2 per week
Lyon: 6 per week
Valence: 2 per week

EUROPEAN RAIL LINKS WITH EXCELLENT TRANSIT TIMES

MARSEILLE FOS, LOCAL LOGISTICS

WAREHOUSES CLOSE TO THE TERMINALS

With two container terminals opened at Fos in 2012, and a three-fold increase in operational capacity, the port has seen its supply chain ambitions come to fruition with the construction of warehouses such as those of IKEA (65,000 m²), MAISONS DU MONDE (84,000 m²) and MATTEL/GEODIS (40,000 m²).
The IDEC/LIFE consortium has seen in Fos an investment opportunity. It is developing a logistics park of over 180,000 m² at La Feuillane, the biggest logistics real estate project under way in the port.

Logistics offering
3 million square metres available within a 30 km radius of the port
2 logistics areas near the container terminals: Distriport and La Feuillane. They can host nearly 1 million square metres of warehouses.
