Troyes and Aube, a logistics hub

Aube is a global platform for goods handling and dispatch, thanks to its quadrimodal infrastructure network:

  • A5 and A26 motorways and connections with the A4 and A6
  • Parisian airports 90 minutes away and the Paris Vatry freight airport 30 minutes away
  • Rail links between Paris and Belfort (short-line operations under development)
  • Regular bulk/container river transport lines between Le Havre and the Port de l'Aube (wide-gauge canal linked to the HAROPA network)

E-commerce in Aube's DNA

Since the mediaeval Foires de Champagne fairs, Aube has always combined production, distribution and sale. It is now a crucible of expertise in e-commerce.

  • Delivery: presence of major transport, logistics, groupage and small parcel groups
  • Customer relationship management: presence of expert contact centres such as Sitel, Euro CRM, Arvato (3 Media) etc.
  • Packaging: 270 companies specialising in packaging and co-packaging solutions
  • Storage: solutions offered by professionals with a varied range of buildings available
