France's second largest inland port covers more than 1000 hectares on the west bank of the Rhine and includes satellite sites at Lauterbourg and Marckolsheim. It handles more than 1.8m tonnes of freight per year, principally cereals, consumer goods, and petroleum products.

The port took over ownership of its railway infrastructure last year.

Europorte announced in July it had won the contract to operate the rail network in the port of Bordeaux, and it also operates port railways in Dunkerque, Nantes Saint-Nazaire, Rouen, and Paris.
