Port of Brest

At the crossroads between the Channel and Atlantic maritime areas, with free access to the sea, the port of Brest is at the heart of European transport networks. 150 to 200 ships use the Ushant Traffic Separation Scheme daily.

 

As a major commercial port and naval repair site on a regional and national level, it is a major asset for the Breton economy. Located in the Bay of Brest, the regional port of Brest processes 3 million tons of cargo.


The port covers an area of around 220 hectares with a commercial berth of 4,000 linear metres, a berth of 800 linear metres dedicated to repairs as well as three dry docks. One of the three dry docks is one of the largest in Europe and can accommodate super tankers, container ships or the latest generation of cruise ships.

It is the leading Breton port for container traffic and the first French ship repair site. 

Founded in 1972 in Brest, the U.A.T. maritime company (Union Armoricaine de Transports) provides full logistics services including ship agency, stevedoring, warehousing, chartering and freight forwarding.


We are specialised in handling containers, project cargo, heavy lifts as well as general cargo. We also deal with logistics on land.


Our services include cargo loading and unloading of the ships and warehousing in secured indoor and outdoor storage facilities. We sometimes deal with transport to the end customer, and lastly handle customs for import and export operations.
