The article reports on the plan of Le Havre, France's leading container port, for a Phase II development of its Port 2000 complex. The port is looking to add six more berths at a cost of €315m and hopes they will go into service between September 2009 and July 2010, according to Lloyds List. The port authority said the development is in response to demand from major shipping companies and builds on the success of Terminal de France, the first terminal to start operating.
