On 12 March 2020, the French government took a series of major health measures to counter the spread of COVID-19 in the country. These measures include in particular avoiding contact between people as much as possible.

Against this background, Dunkerque-Port services (ship services, harbour master's office, rail and river services, etc.) are fully operational and fully mobilized. Measures have been taken to ensure the continuation of our customers' business activities while preserving the health of our employees.

Within a crisis unit, the management team of Dunkerque-Port has implemented measures to preserve the health of our employees while allowing port activities to continue.

For this reason, the organization of the work of field teams has been redesigned in order to avoid any contact between people as much as possible; all port visits and events have been cancelled; the use of teleworking has been strongly encouraged for most of the workforce and as much as possible.

The usual contacts of the port are reachable for customers and for usual business.

Dunkerque-Port ensures the continuity of its short- and deep sea shipping services.

All of the multimodal services from the container terminal (Terminal des Flandres / TDF) are operational. This is the case, in particular, of the NPS Dunkerque-Lille-Dourges-Valenciennes river service but also of rail services.
