Seine Axis

Repossession of the Seine River as centuries pass

From Gallo-Roman times to the present day, the Seine River has been the foundation on which the Caux Seine area has built its economic development.  A former commercial stronghold, the area has reinvented itself via 4 structural sectors (logistics, aeronautics, energy and fine chemistry) and more recently energy transition, a field in which some of the world’s leading groups have decided to develop their activities, helping to create vibrant inter-business synergies.

A land of industry, but also a region which attracts an increasing number of tourists along the Seine River, with some 80 000 visitors enjoying a Seine cruise every year. Today, the region is working to develop tours to the Gallo-Roman heritage sites along the way.

Today, the Caux Seine agglo area is turned to the future, looking forward, centering new development around the digital and circular economies. So, what are Caux Seine’s assets?

  • The largest quantity of land available along the Seine River
  • Multimodal transport platforms
  • Private jetties with direct access to the river
  • Proximity to the ports of Rouen and Le Havre
  • Strong inter-business cooperation and synergies
