The Port Authority

Founded by Central Government decree on 9th October 2008, pursuant to the provisions of the French Ports Reform Act dated 4th July 2008, the Nantes – Saint Nazaire Port Authority is a public enterprise corporation. It is charged with implementing public policies on sustainable planning and development, while managing compromises between economic, employment and environmental concerns.

On 12th June 2009, the Port Authority’s Supervisory Board adopted a strategic plan presenting a shared vision for the Port on the Loire Estuary, building towards 2020. The plan notably provides for the development of intermodal logistics and the establishment of a top European container terminal.
