First Dacia Imports Arrive at Fos
The first 402 Dacia cars from Morocco have arrived at Fos aboard the Neptune Lines car carrier City of Oslo under a deal that will see 20,000 vehicles per year imported for the French market.
France-bound Dacia cars built at the Renault (RNL.BE)-Nissan plant in Tangiers are being handled at a new terminal operated by vehicle logistics specialist TEA, part of the Charles André group. The Marseilles Fos port authority chose TEA to develop and run the site last December following a call for tenders in November 2012.
The port already handles 220,000 vehicles per year at two other import/export terminals. The new 14-hectare facility, at the Brule-Tabac quay in Fos, will increase annual capacity by up to 60,000 cars.
