Container Terminal Bruay-sur-l'Escaut


Welcome to Contargo North France at the Bruay-sur-l’Escaut terminal!

We are your point of contact for container transport operations in the Hauts-de-France region. Via our trimodal terminal, we link the industrial west of France with the Antwerp and Rotterdam seaports. Located directly on the Scheldt, our terminal facilitates the smooth handling of cargo between barges and lorries. Whether standard, hazardous goods or reefers, your containers are in safe hands with us.

Located on a secure site in the vicinity of Valenciennes, our facility has automated processes that ensure fast and efficient lorry processing. Our container crane located at a berth for barges and a rail track facilitates fast handling.

As well as transport and handling, we render many other services for your containers, such as stuffing and stripping, maintenance and repairs.

Our scheduled services to Antwerp, Rotterdam, Terneuzen and Dunkirk are good arguments in favour of barges. We would be delighted to convince you of the advantages of water transport for your transport operations. We look forward to answering your enquiry and providing support for your transport project.
