Contargo North France Receives Award for Cooperation with Customs
29 September 2015 – On 24 September 2015 in Paris, Contargo North France received the "Demain l'Economie" prize awarded under the aegis of the French Ministry of Economics.
This award honoured the cooperation between the government and the logistics enterprise which made it possible for the Escaut Valenciennes Terminal operated by Contargo to become, in February of this year, the first French terminal to be certified as an "Extended Gateway".
The terminal in north France has held this status since February 2015. This enables Contargo to transport containers which have been unloaded at MSC terminals in the Port of Antwerp directly by barge to the Escaut Valenciennes Terminal, without prior customs processing in the seaport. They then undergo customs processing in Escaut Valenciennes.
