It serves a vast hinterland, the heart of which is located in the Seine Valley, thanks to a global, multimodal and carbon-free service offer from Le Havre to Rouen and on to Greater Paris. 

GreenPort Congress & Cruise conference provides the port community with the latest updates on sustainable environmental practices. Leading speakers in the sector will offer valuable insights, contributing to the work already being undertaken by maritime ports and terminals in reducing carbon footprints and dealing with environmental considerations, both vital to their future success. Business networking and exchange of information opportunities are once again key features of the event. 

HAROPA PORT has connections to every continent with a container capacity of 2.63 million TEU.  From Le Havre to Paris, the port complex possesses a total of over 16,000 hectares of area and 12 million sq. m. of warehousing space available along the Seine Axis. Its annual maritime and river activity stands at 106m tonnes, generating €7.3m in value along with 160,000 jobs. The Cruise market is well catered for, welcoming over 250,000 passengers a year at three dedicated cruise terminals. 

Stéphane Raison, CEO and chair of the board of management of HAROPA PORT comments, “HAROPA PORT is proud to be hosting this 19th edition of Greenport Congress & Cruise in Le Havre, France. This event is an opportunity for the port community to discuss sustainable environmental practices and to raise the profile of HAROPA PORT, France’s leading port for foreign trade and 4th largest port in Northern Europe. HAROPA PORT is decarbonising its activities, notably through the use of new fuels and the electrification of the ships at berth. Thanks to the creation of the Seine axis green corridor, HAROPA PORT is positioning itself as a key player in the ecological and energy transition in France and more widely on a European and international scale”
