Located on the Asia-Africa route, Reunion Island enjoys a strategic position as an important hub for international trade in the southern hemisphere. Its location makes it a mainspring for the economic development and attractiveness of the island.
The key goals of Grand Port Maritime de La Réunion are to modernise the range of port services, assist with the development of activities, and become an environmental and social point of reference in the Indian Ocean.
As a regional flagship of European excellence in terms of safety, infrastructure, and sustainable development, Grand Port Maritime de La Réunion has all the assets needed to consolidate its position as a world-class port in the Indian Ocean.
Competitive advantages such as these led Grand Port Maritime de La Réunion to be chosen in 2015 by the shipping company CMA-CGM as its transshipment hub in the Indian Ocean.
