Logistics at the service of the customer

Today, 80% of the cereals marketed by Cerevia are sold “delivered to factories and ports”.

Cerevia provides storage and logistics for its customers, with a permanent concern for quality and responsiveness of service.

Cérévia builds its logistic flow (mainly rail and river freight) by relying on the major shipping silos of the union’s cooperatives.

From the north of Burgundy and all along the Saône-Rhône axis, these facilities contribute to the development of an efficient and reactive logistics flow.

Cerevia’s logistics are based on

Multi-modal logistics

The railway

Since 2010, a rail logistics partnership is engaged with the operator Europorte. 300 to 350,000 tons per campaign are transported by train to Fos-sur-Mer and other French ports.

It is the backbone for Cerevia’s exports to the Mediterranean basin. The wide-gauge corridor from Pagny (Côte-d’Or) to Fos-sur-Mer is about 550 km long, a distance covered within 48 to 72 hours by the bargemen.
