Connected with the everyday lives of Strasbourg's residents

Factories, storage silos, warehouses, containers, barges, trains, lorries, boat trips – the busy activity of the PAS is in direct contact with the everyday lives of Strasbourg’s residents.

The PAS is first and foremost a gateway to the sea and the rest of the world. The platform dealing with this special stage in importing and exporting handles loading and unloading operations using the most up-to-date equipment available. The port has two container terminals, each equipped with gantries that look like great metallic wading birds and are used for handling various loads.

These loads may be containers or other heavy packages, but not all goods are containerised. Some – including gravel and cereals – arrive in bulk. Multimodality is the main feature of the port, served by three modes of transport: river, rail, and road. This configuration makes it easier to shift goods from one mode to another.

Flour, yeast, cardboard, oil, etc

The platform is an economic focal point in the Strasbourg conurbation; it covers almost a thousand hectares, 680 of which are dedicated to hosting businesses.

There are currently about 320 businesses active in the port area, in production (agro-foodstuffs, mechanics, metalworking, waste recycling), transport and logistics. Activities that are directly connected to the everyday lives of Strasbourg’s residents. Silos contain cereals that are turned into the flour used by our bakers. Here also is produced the yeast that makes kougelhopfs rise and the cardboard that is used for wrapping our packages. The oil terminal provides supplies for petrol stations throughout the region. Household rubbish, waste, scrap metal and paper are all processed, recuperated and recycled in the port area. The port is also a vast storage area. Clothing, domestic appliances, high-tech goods, and cleaning products are just some of the goods that pass through the port before reaching our homes. Lastly, tourism is a core activity at the port. The excursion boats operated by Batorama, a subsidiary of the PAS, are the top paying tourist attraction in Alsace.
