Total adapte sa logistique pétrolière en France



January 20, 2010: In response to declining petroleum product demand, Total will be gradually adjusting its logistics network in France. The process entails:

  • Outsourcing the operations of five depots* to specialized logistics companies.
  • Closing the Pontet depot in the Vaucluse region, southeastern France.
  • Investing in the Port-la-Nouvelle petroleum product depot in the Aude region, south-central France, to double its capacity.

Following the restructuring, Total — No. 1 in France in petroleum product logistics — will still have a nation-wide logistics presence.

The project was presented to the Central Works Committee on January 20, 2010. Layoffs will be avoided through internal placements.

* Hauconcourt depot in the Lorraine region,  eastern France
   Saint-Julien depot in the French Alps region
   Le Mans depot in the Loire region, western France
   Ouistreham depot in Lower Normandy
   Port-la-Nouvelle depot in the Languedoc-Roussillon
