Do you know where the 2nd and 3rd biggest fluvial ports in France are located? They are the Port of Strasbourg (2nd) and the Ports of Mulhouse-Rhine (3rd). In Alsace, we have our own little “Nile”: the Rhine! It flows through Europe offering 850 km of navigable waterways, which is ideal for transporting goods by river.

The Ports of Mulhouse-Rhine (Ports de Mulhouse-Rhin – PMR)
The PMR includes the ports of Ottmarsheim, Huningue and Ile Napoléon. At the heart of the tri-national European basin, they are directly connected to the ports of Antwerp (Belgium), Rotterdam (Netherlands) and Zeebrugge (Belgium).

As the 3rd biggest fluvial port in France with annual fluvial traffic of around 6 million tonnes, the PMR employs around 80 staff to handle and store goods (containers, bulk products, heavy parcels, hazardous substances, etc.).
