The initial 3-year agreement can be converted to a long-term concession in the future.

The contract will see P&O Ports operating a container terminal with a draft up to 14.5m along 457m of quay (Quay H) and with 2-ha backland that was completed last year under phase 1. The terminal is expected to commence operations this October.

As previously reported, the terminal was developed to provide shippers in South Western France (Occitania) with a convenient deep water alternative to Barcelona to the west and Marseille-Fos to the east.

Port de Sète has the capacity to process all types of vessels with additional land to be developed for container/multipurpose activity, with direct inland waterway communications as well as highway and freight rail links to Paris, and is well-positioned to serve nearby large centres of population including Toulouse, Montpellier and Clermont-Ferrand.

Port President Jean Claude Gayssot said: “We are pleased to be working with P&O Ports, a well-know brand having a worldwide reputation in the shipping sector and part of the DP World network.
