Top Transport Europe




Second largest river port in France after Paris, a true multimodal transport platform, the Ports of Strasbourg represent each year 8 million tons of river traffic and more than 400,000 handling operations for container traffic. It is a major asset for the massification of the flow of goods at local and national levels and contributes to the economic development of the Strasbourg metropolis and the Rhine area. The PAS has two subsidiaries which participate in the economic dynamism of the territory: – Rhine Europe Terminals which manages the container terminals; – Batorama, which offers boat tours in Strasbourg and is the region's first paying tourist attraction. The Ports of Strasbourg hosts 500 companies and more than 10,000 jobs throughout the Bas-Rhin (from Marckolsheim to Lauterbourg) thus playing the role of maritime facade of the Grand Est. In Strasbourg more particularly, it is a territory driven by an industrial ecology approach that develops synergies between companies in the port area, with a view to both increased competitiveness and environmental responsibility. The PAS has plenty of projects to increase its international openness, with the development of its container terminal in Lauterbourg, with the company Lauterbourg Rhine Terminal, the creation of a new railway terminal in Strasbourg and an ambitious multimodal policy. In 2021, the inauguration of the new PAS headquarters, in the heart of the port, marked the 95th anniversary of the establishment through a building signaling its role as a facilitator and animator at the heart of the port community.
