Our objectives

Creating a network that establishes sustainable connections and value

01.MODAL SHIFT
Pooling the service offering along the entire network to encourage modal shift.
02.NETWORK
Increasing the gauge of the network in order to develop
the hinterland of the seaports by improving or creating
multimodal platforms and container terminals with a regional,
national and European scope.
03.BOTTLENECK
Removing a bottleneck on the wide-gauge European
waterway network.
04.ECOLOGY
Encouraging ecology and energy transitions by reducing
the transport sector's consumption of energy through the
development and use of new forms of energy, and by
contributing to the development of renewable energies
biomass, wind power, solar power, etc.).
05.WATER MANAGEMENT
Mastering hydraulic management
to enable safe navigation and tackle
climate change in the long term.
06.SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
Creating new sustainable routes for the trade and resources of tomorrow,
as part of a circular economy approach.
07.INDUSTRY
Developing industrial and logistics facilities
along the waterway
to boost economic performance,
improve access to the heart of major conurbations
and facilitate exports to large seaports.
08.INNOVATION
Creating innovative logistics solutions based around information systems, multimodality, flexibility and pooling resources between stakeholders to create a genuinely shared network.
09.INVESTMENT
Promoting investment and the pooling
of services (logistics, energy)
in a multi-sector approach: food industry,
construction, chemicals, recycling, large retail.
10.PORT STRATEGY
Contributing, within the Seine-Scheldt port network, to the development of modes of bulk transport along the Atlantic and North Sea-Mediterranean European multimodal corridors.
11.ACCESS TO FREIGHT
Developing the capacities of access to bulk freight within major conurbations and across the entire network of towns along the waterways.
12.INTER-REGIONAL
A shared ambition for 40 million inhabitants
at the heart of the European economy.
13.REDUCING CONGESTION
Reducing the impacts of transport (emissions, congestion, accidents, noise) in the north-west quarter of Europe (Paris, Lille, Brussels, Antwerp).
14.URBAN LOGISTICS
Developing last-mile logistics solutions at the heart of cities thanks to the massification possibilities offered by water and rail.
15.SECURITY
Automating and digitising infrastructure
and information systems to improve security and capacity
across the Seine-Scheldt network.
16.TOURISM
Developing soft modes of discovering regions
by boat and by bike.
