Swissterminal expands footprint into France
Swissterminal AG has lined up operations takeover at three inland ports in the French Alsace region.
The three ports, Ottmarsheim, Huningue and Ile Napoléon provide a range of services including bulk and breakbulk, commercial rental space, project cargo solutions and rail services.
The company’s expansion into France, announced in early 2021, will provide customers with additional space for logistics growth as well as increased handling and storage capacity.
Swissterminal started operating the ports on July 1, 2021 through its unit Alsaceterminal SAS.

As part of its growth strategy, Swissterminal AG has also strengthened its management team. Roman Mayer remains CEO of the Swissterminal Group and is supported by Jürg Wiggli, Deputy CEO.
In the newly created position of COO Terminals Switzerland, Jürg Wiggli is also responsible for terminal operations in Switzerland.
Tatiana Mayer remains CCO, and Mark Mayer will continue to serve as CFO.
Romain Stemmelen has been newly appointed to the Executive Board as CTO. In addition, Lionel Husser has taken over the management of the activities in France as COO Ports & Terminals France and Managing Director of Alsaceterminal SAS. Additionally, Andreas Jeppesen, as COO Business & Warehousing Solutions, will oversee warehousing and corporate services at all locations.
“The start of operations in France is incredibly exciting for all of us in the company. We are very much looking forward to building a bigger and stronger organisation and accelerating logistics activities in France and the tri-border area,” said Roman Mayer, CEO of the Swissterminal Group. “We have a strong management team in place. Together, we will drive the introduction of more products, further improve performance and reliability in French ports and develop innovative measures to make all logistics processes more sustainable.”
