Description:

The Port of Dunkerque is France's biggest harbour on the North Sea in terms of the total traffic throughput - although mostly known for handling heavy bulk, also does well in other sectors, including containers. CMA CGM/MacAndrews networks provide a direct link from Dunkerque to the Baltic region and Russia.

The port owes its third position among busiest French maritime gateways (according to annual cargo traffic) to over 43 mln tn carried by approximately 7,000 vessels each year. Situated 40 km from English Dover, 10 km from the Belgian frontier, close to the city of Lille and at the heart of the Brussels-London-Paris triangle, Dunkerque is a platform for goods consolidation and redistribution in Europe. The port extends along a waterfront of 17 km and has two entries for shipping: the older – Eastern Port – which is restricted to the ships of 14.2 m draught, and the newer – Western Port – home to container and roro terminals, which can accommodate vessels with draughts up to 22 m.

The Container Terminal – NFTI, handled almost 300,000 TEU in 2013. The CMA CGM/MacAndrews container ships berth at the NFTI and depart for Ust-Luga and St. Petersburg every week.
