New HAROPA innovation lab launched

French Customs, HAROPA, SOGET and ISEL University of Le Havre Normandy, have pooled forces to create an applied research laboratory dedicated to trade facilitation, digital customs and logistics to meet new trade opportunities, known as TRAFIS LAB.

The founding entities have initiated a Scientific Interest Group to host the partnership, which will welcome researchers and private stakeholders from around the world, starting this year.

Hervé Martel, general director of HAROPA Port of Le Havre, said: TRAFIS LAB should bring operational solutions to strengthen trade competitiveness and stimulate the logistics fluidity of the

multimodal transport system on the Seine river.

“Beyond a mere port service, customers are looking for a thorough and competitive solution. Their demands concern specific issues: an efficient transit port, a logistics model connected up to the international multimodal networks of distribution, warehousing capacities both automated and HQE, and finally an interoperable information system with the other information and planning systems of the supply chain stakeholders connected throughout the world.

“TRAFIS LAB will enable a collaborative approach with our industrial, logistics and shipowners customers, to digitise port logistics. TRAFIS LAB prepares our future within the scope of the digital transformation in order to improve the performance of our port and logistics eco-system.”
