Site assets

Montereau-Fault-Yonne is a genuine multimodal platform with good road, rail and waterway connections. A logistics zone well located on north-south routes.

A dynamic environment: the Confluent Enterprise Zone

The Confluent Enterprise Zone covers more than 100ha with some sixty companies (out of the 90 industrial firms in Montereau).
Their activities are highly diversified: manufacture of electrical equipment, the gas industry, steelworks, bulk products and also luxury goods.

4 modes of transport

Road: 50 minutes from Paris by the A5 motorway (direct link to the A5 via the Forge-Marolle junction) and 20km from the A6 motorway (via the N6 and N105)
Rail: 1 hour from Paris via the Paris-Lyon SNCF line, TGV connections in Melun-Sénart. Freight services to the Confluent Enterprise Zone.
River: with large-gauge access (convoys of 250 to 3,600 tonnes) reaching beyond Paris, the Seine links Montereau directly to Rotterdam and ports in the UK. The Yonne River, meanwhile, offers interesting possibilities to and from Burgundy (600 tonne convoys).
Air: Orly Airport is 45 minutes away and Roissy 1 hour.

The Container Terminal project

In early 2013, the Port of Montereau should see the addition of a Container Terminal, confirming its role as the bridgehead of the upstream section of the Seine.


  • To divert a growing share of maritime containers headed for the south of the Ile-de-France region onto the waterways.
  • To set up combined rail/waterway transport.
  • To reduce road traffic in Ile de France
  • To build this Container Terminal, the Autonomous Port of Paris has bought 3 hectares of land beside the Seine (left bank). The municipality of Montereau has given its approval for the acquisition of the land necessary for the rail connection.

The type of work:

  • Building waterway structures
  • Consolidating the banks
  • Developing the land
  • Building rail access

The operator chosen to run the Container Terminal is a grouping of three firms: Charles André Group, the CFT and Terminaux de Normandie.

Commissioning of the Container Terminal is scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.
