The Le Verdon terminal is a major deepwater port (12.5 metres draft) with vast amounts of land available at quayside and a 12,000m² hangar. Specialising in the transportation of containers, the port also handles heavy lift cargo of all varieties and serves as an anchoring point for large cruise ships. This terminal, through which more than 200,000 tonnes of cargo is transported each year, also has 3 quayside berths, two container gantries and a roll-on/roll-off ramp. A rail network also directly links the port terminal to the Bordeaux metro area. Le Verdon also boasts the South West Europe Container Terminal (TCSO), an upgraded terminal that offers simplified customs procedures and strategic tax advantages.

Airbus logistics and fuel storage
This terminal on the left bank, which has several units reserved for oil tankers, is also the principal regional logistical centre for Airbus, handling transportation of A380 components. Arriving by sea from France, England, Germany and Spain, these components are then transferred to specially-fitted barges which take them on to Langon. The convoys then continue to Toulouse by road. Nearly 710,000 tonnes of cargo are shipped each year from the Pauillac site.
