Port of Call: Le Havre, France
At the mouth of the Seine River lies the Port of Le Havre. The port’s location near two major European motorways—the A131 and the A29—and its 24-hour access by sea makes it one of France’s most efficient ports for international shipping services. In fact, it moves 60% of all containers brought into the country.
Ships have been arriving at the Port of Le Havre since 1517. However, after taking some devastating blows during World War II, the port called for total reconstruction based on the site plan of 1939. Today, the Port of Le Havre consists of a series of canal-like docks. As a deep-water seaport, Le Havre can accommodate all types of vessels around the clock including roll-on/roll-off vessels for international automobile shipping and heavy equipment shipping, without any tidal restrictions.
