Marseille, France (PortSEurope) March 12, 2021 – On March 5, the supervisory board of the port of Marseille Fos approved its strategic plan for the period 2020-2024. The budget aims to balance growth with environmental improvements. Élisabeth Ayrault, president of the supervisory board of the Port of Marseille Fos, has highlighted four strategic aims for the period 2020-2024. The first is industrial revitalization and innovation to
make energy transition a success. This includes CO2 recycling and dockside electricity supply. Secondly, digital transition and new technologies, which will account for investment of €350 million in the period. The third point is enhancing the skills of the port area. The fourth and final aim is the development of a rail plan in conjunction with the stakeholders of the Mediterranean-Rhône-Saône river transport axis to support environmental targets. The port’s traditional business sectors have experienced sluggish growth in recent years, and port management has identified the container sector, logistics and hinterland development as key prospects. Automotive, Ro-Ro, liquified natural gas (LNG) and chemical bulk sectors are also targeted. The port has included in its strategic plan the proactive objective of increasing the share of containers transported by rail and by river from 20% today to 30% in 2030. Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
