Europorte: diversification and sustainable growth

Due to its dense coverage in France and capacity to serve industrial sites in Belgium and Germany, Europorte is present across the entire rail freight transport logistical chain, from collecting and haulage on on national networks, i.e. primary and secondary lines, via its subsidiary Europorte France, to the loading / unloading of wagons on the private connections to industrial sites, management of railway infrastructure (ports, private industrial and semi-public sites) in France, but also in Belgium via its subsidiary Europorte Services / Socorail as well as railway ground operations at the Frethun (Pas-de-Calais) and Dollands Moore (Kent) yards and traction of some rail freight trains in the Channel Tunnel via its subsidiary Europorte Channel.

Europorte jointly operates its various activities, which are very complementary, in order to offer its customers a wide range of services as well as complete and customised solutions, meeting their expectations for integrated logistics chains and high-quality of service.

A profitable business model

In 2021, Europorte recorded a solid performance with a +6% growth in annual revenue at €130M, and an improvement in profitability with EBITDA up by +2% at €28M. These results were boosted by a good sector positioning, a very limited exposure to intermodal transport and continued growth in activity in cross-border transport flows between France, Belgium and Germany.
