The Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port “Port Atlantique” is France’s 4th most important port, and number one on the Atlantic coast. It represents a major economical factor of Saint-Nazaire and the region. More than 3,000 ships anchor every year on the terminals of the Port Authority which represent some 2,700 hectares between Nantes and Saint-Nazaire.
