SDV Announces Launch Project to Build 36,000m2 Logistics Hub at Port of Le Havre

[ September 16, 2015   //   ]

SDV Logistique Internationale, a subsidiary of Bolloré Logistics, and HAROPA recently signed a preliminary agreement for the construction of a warehouse on the Parc Logistique du Pont de Normandie 2 (PLPN2) platform at the Port of Le Havre.

This project is divided into two successive construction stages: the first stage involves a surface area of 24,000m2, followed by an additional 12,000m2 for the second stage. At completion, SDV, which already operates several warehouses in the PLPN1 zone, will benefit from a total surface area of 75,000m2 for its transport and logistics activities at the Port of Le Havre. Delivery of the building is forecast for October 2016.

 “This new project is an integral part of our growth strategy for major global hubs,” said Thierry Ehrenbogen, Chairman of SDV Logistique Internationale. “We are rolling out innovative and efficient logistics tools within these hubs, which are in line with the latest quality standards. The strengthening of our positions in the main international trading hubs, along with a competitive services offering, enables us to attract greater flows and manage the logistics and supply chain activities of our customers. Other major projects are currently underway in France and abroad.”

In a bid to stay abreast of market changes and its customers’ need, the PLPN2 warehouse will provide “dry” goods storage. This will allow SDV to vacate and develop a large 5,000m2 area solely dedicated to Reefer logistics in the PLPN1 zone.

With France preparing to host the 21st UN Climate Change Conference, environmental issues are more pertinent than ever for the Bolloré Group. The future warehouse, which will be located right next to the new multi-modal terminal at Le Havre, will be certified LEED®v4 and BiodiverCity®.
