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.

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
