The TGV station and the Channel Tunnel link Dunkirk with the major capitals of Europe. You can reach Lille in 30 minutes and Paris in an hour and a half. Dunkirk is also France’s largest goods marshalling yard with more than 14 MT transported every year (12% of national freight). As well as heavy bulks, rail transport also benefits from the extension of the grain hinterland with nearly 320,000 tonnes shipped every year. Combined transport is growing, with the operator GREENMODAL: the Dunkirk-Bonneuil shuttle tripled its frequency in February 2016.
