On December 23, 2020, the Syndicat Mixte Ouvert (SMO) of the Port of Colmar Neuf-Brisach validated the implementation of a new Public Service Delegation in the Port.
This will enable a new type of operator, a Société d’Economie Mixte à opération unique (SEMOP) associating the SMO, CFNR Transport and the Banque des Territoires (Part of the CDC), to develop and manage the Rhine Port for the next 30 years.
The Port of Colmar Neuf-Brisach currently employs 28 people with a turnover of 3.5 million euros in 2020. It offers high-performance multimodal services for an annual traffic of 1.4 million tons.
An investment plan of €27 million will enable the Port to develop its services based on its strengths.
These investments will be financed by private capital, state and territorial subsidies as well as bank financing arranged by a banking pool composed of the Caisse d’Epargne Grand Est Europe and the Banque Populaire Alsace Lorraine Champagne.
The implementation of the new contract and the creation of the new company will take place during the first quarter of 2021.
CFNR Transport and the Rhenus Group are pleased to participate in this unique port management and thank the SMO of the Port of Colmar Neuf-Brisach for its confidence. With already a strong experience in port operations in Europe and France, CFNR Transport and the Rhenus group are confident about the future and the prospects offered by this new activity within the group.
