Container river/canal transport for heavy loads is a very effective alternative to avoid road congestion.
Reputed as one of the major container shippers on the Maçon – Lyon – Fos-sur-Mer line, the Group’s Overseas Division provides expertise to review the transport details with you (e.g. loading and unloading points, pre-delivery to a bay, etc.) so as to plan how to transport your goods by river/canal.

Backed by its expertise in rail transport, the Overseas Division takes care to facilitate access to this economical and environment-friendly means of transport.


A major French player in multimodal transport, the ALAINÉ Group is at the forefront of innovation. Its large fleet of huckepack trailers have been specially designed to be handled by gripper trucks, and can therefore travel on all European railways. Concerned about global climate issues, the ALAINÉ Group contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases by developing piggyback transport and multimodal transport, a system at the heart of reducing CO2 emissions. Choosing multimodal also means guaranteeing the secure supply of your customers in a fluid and regular manner while being less exposed to variations in oil prices.


Alainé applies its in-depth knowledge of customs regulations to facilitate your cross-border business. Several Group logistics locations let you store import and export goods while suspending customs procedures, make buying more flexible and ease cash flow by deferring payment of customs dues and taxes.


Alainé pays close attention to the specific features of your goods and provides appropriate anchoring and handling equipment. Following your specifications, Alainé Logistics staff can implement manual or automated container loading and unloading procedures to ensure the integrity of your cargo.
