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.
