French term or phrase: la desserte naturelle des ports
From a logistics company's "weekly press summary."

"Mais pour atteidnre les objectifs du Grenelle de l'environnement et permettre au fluvial d'accroître de 25% sa part de marché d(ici à 2012, c'est encore insuffisant, estime XXX. Selon lui, il faut notamment permettre à la voie d'eau de vraiment s'imposer comme la desserte naturelle des ports"

Thanks
