The Company

Marseille Manutention is the main Ro-Ro Terminal in the Port of Marseille/Fos specialising in Northern African destinations. Located in the centre of Marseille, the terminal has direct Rail and Motorway (A55) access.

Calling at 8 ports each week, the company provides the shortest transit time from Europe to North Africa. Vessels leaving the Terminal sail directly to Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.


Marseille Manutention was created by the Léon Vincent Group in 1993.

The central Marseille company was originally called TFM, Terminal Fruitier de Marseille (the Marseille Fruit Terminal) and specialised in handling cargoes of fruit and vegetables.

In 1998, the company moved into other handling activities and changed its name to the one it has today.
In 2000, Marseille Manutention took over a major part of the traffic handled by the company UPA (Union Phocéenne d’Acconage) which was in liquidation.
In 2005, the company was taken over by Sea Invest.
In 2008, the company joined the Ro-Ro Marseille business cluster, initially with Socoman then, in 2012, with Intramar Ro-Ro, to develop synergies and improve the quality of services provided.
In 2013, Marseille Manutention was acquired by CMAT, and left the Ro-Ro Marseille group to develop its own business activities.
