Duisburg, 27.04.2017 – Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport) is expanding its rail freight volume. The Port’s own rail company duisport rail will run one container train weekly between the Port of Duisburg and the container terminal of the JadeWeserPort in Wilhelmshaven as of 12 May, 2017.
The duisport agency will manage the organizational aspects. The deepwater port JadeWeserPort is the only German port that can harbor and process the world’s largest container ships carrying 18,000 standard containers (TEU) and more.
“The new rail connection gives the JadeWeserPort direct access to Europe’s largest logistics hub. This is good for both Wilhelmshaven and the handling volume of the Port of Duisburg,” according to duisport’s Managing Director Erich Staake.
