The Port of Le Havre, Port Autonome du Havre, is the Port and port authority of the Normandy city of Le Havre, France.
The port of Le Havre consists of a series of canal-like docks, the Canal de Tancarville and the Grand Canal du Havre, that connect Le Havre to the Seine, close to the Pont de Tancarville, 24 km ( 14.9 m) upstream.
The Port of Le Havre is managed by a state agency called Port autonome du Havre (port authority of Le Havre). The flag of the Port Authority shows a white logo on a blue background and is flown at the authority's offices.
The main responsibility of the Harbour office is to constantly manage sea transport through traffic forecasts, traffic control, berthing of ships, navigation assistance, radar coverage, radio connections, collection and dissemination of information, co-ordination of operations, and remote control of peripheral equipment. It also has to control the flow of navigation on its territory, and manage the arrivals and departures of ships.
