24h TruckPark

In order to comply with ISPS code regulations to ensure the safety of the port facility, we have set up a 24-hour truckpark service. The terminal is part of a shared zone of the Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque. This zone is under the responsibility of the port authority and is guarded 24 hours a day independently of the terminal itself. The terminal is delimited by the Flandres and Lorraine wharfs, as well as a fence. In addition to the regular rounds carried out on the terminal, the security guards also use a video surveillance system.
