    Official inauguration of the scheduled FlexiLoire river service line

    FlexiLoire multi-site and multi-line waterway service was inaugurated the 18th of April 2018 in the presence of representatives from the commission group at the origin of its creation - Nantes Métropole, Saint-Nazaire Agglomeration CARENE and Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port - and the operator, Compagnie Ligérienne de Transport.

    Since early January, from Monday to Saturday, the navigation teams have been working on the push-convoy + the Jules Verne barge to accompany CLT organizations and the operation of future development projects under the FlexiLoire banner.

    FlexiLoire’s innovation consists of a service offer that is designed as a scheduled line with a daily planning. The offer is aimed at all shippers in the region, whether they have recurring transportation needs or spot  requirements.

    Airbus, a CLT customer since 2003 under a dedicated travel logistics organization, is the first shipper to support the creation of FlexiLoire based on its confidence in the teams. Airbus integrates into its supply chain, a modal shift towards inland navigation with a significant volume commitment over the next 5 years.

    For the largest potential shippers on the Loire, the FlexiLoire service will satisfy their expectations and needs in terms of different transport offers. CLT, also in charge of marketing, must now convince them of the flexibility, adaptability and real fluidity of inland navigation so that this mode of transport becomes a reflex in the drafting of specification and quotation requests.
