Logistics, An Engine of Provence's International Competitiveness

Provence attracts new investors every year thanks to its fully developed logistics sector, its technological advances, and the continuous success of its companies. Thanks to its unbeatable location in the heart of the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) region, it is a natural gateway to emerging markets with significant growth potential.

Companies that choose to develop their project in Aix-Marseille-Provence benefit from several advantages:

  • The large number of shipping lines operated by the world's largest shipping companies;
  • The extensively developed North/South—East/West highway network;
  • The multimodal rail network with the second largest rail/shunting yard at its disposal;
  • The competitive air freight services with an international airport open 24 hours a day;
  • The excellent real estate offer with five major logistics parks and a multitude of other nearby sites.

To maintain its position as a world leader in logistics and transportation, the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis is also embarking on an ambitious investment campaign to further improve the airport infrastructure and to provide state-of-the-art equipment for the supply chain. Furthermore, the Port of Marseille-Fos has already invested in the refurbishing its basins and constructing Forme 10 (the largest naval repair dry dock in the Mediterranean), and it is continuing its commitment to become the Smart Port of tomorrow. In recognition of the port's innovation in information technology, the Port of Marseille-Fos and the Marseille-based company MGI were given the Gold IT Awards by the IAPH (International Association of Ports and Harbors) in May 2017 .
