A multi-modal hub in Île-de-France
Val d’Oise is developing large-scale projects on the back of the impetus provided by Greater Paris. 45 minutes from Paris, Bruyères-sur- Oise will be the gateway to the major ports of northern Europe when the Canal Seine-Nord Europe is completed. The expansion of river freight is is one of the objectives of the Grenelle Environment Forum (increase alternatives to road transport by 25%).
Bruyères-sur-Oise has everything it needs to consolidate its position as a major port in Val-d’Oise.
In addition to the multi-modal platform for transport and logistics companies, a rail shuttle also provides a link to the Chapelle International (Paris 18) urban terminal, transporting the equivalent of 60 semi-trailers.
