Le Havre - Private terminals (CIM/Antifer – crude oil and product cargoes) not affected/ Dry bulk and containers terminals must be affected (dockers), as well as bridges/locks (operated by public staff) to proceed to some private terminals (SHMPP).

Rouen - Most terminals are private ones so not affected, however dockers are blocking the city centre.

Donges - Total (private) terminals (crude oil and product cargoes) not affected. Dry bulk/containers terminals affected (dockers).
