Marfret to exhibit at Breakbulk Europe

Marfret will be exhibiting in Rotterdam at the Breakbulk Europe trade fair from 6 to 8 June. Housed in the Haropa pavilion, stand 2D31, our teams will be meeting with industrialists and freight forwarders to promote the advantages of our maritime transport offer, particularly in conventional transport. “This is an important trade fair that allows us to be as close as possible to our customers and port players in the Northern range where General cargo and Roll on-Roll off activities are very present”, underlines Martial Bienvenu, head of the Marfret agency in Le Havre, enthusiastic about the idea of creating new opportunities.

Marfret’s MPV line will be particularly highlighted: this service, operated by the Marfret Niolon with a capacity of 1,212 linear metres, carries non-containerisable freight (rolling, conventional), as well as sensitive freight requiring a detailed knowledge of customs procedures, between Dégrad-des-Cannes, Pointe-à-Pitre, Antwerp and Le Havre. This service can also reach other ports on inducement, according to the specific requests of our customers.

9,600 visitors are expected at the Ahoy Convention Centre with the 2023 edition focusing on nuclear and wind energy and the future of logistics.

Marfret repositions the Faraman pilot boat in French Guiana

After 16 years of serving ships entering and leaving the port of Marseille, the Faraman pilot boat is leaving the Phocaean city for sunny French Guiana following a transaction between the two pilotage stations. The Faraman was transported by road from Marseille to Le Havre. It is scheduled to be loaded in June onto the Marfret Niolon of the MPV line, which specialises in the transport of conventional and rolling units to French Guiana and the West Indies from Le Havre and Antwerp. Marfret has organised this operation from start to finish, using the expertise of its network of agents to provide a turnkey solution for its customer.

Marfret in the spotlight

Marfret and its general manager Guillaume VIDIL have been honoured with a place in the Choiseul Région Sud list of the 100 most dynamic young executives in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region, home to Marfret’s head office.

The award belongs to all our teams, whether at sea or on shore. Their efforts have enabled our company to continue playing a strategic role -to become a vital link even- during the ongoing pandemic, since it is sea transport that ensures the continued supply of medical equipment and pharmaceutical goods.
