More terminals and better connections for intermodal traffic
The Swiss combined transport operator Hupac Intermodal and Duisburger Hafen (duisport) in Germany are intensifying their cooperation to further develop climate-friendly combined transport.
The two sides have agreed to further develop the Duisburg terminal area and create transhipment capacities for new intermodal connections. Another priority is to improve connections with the western ports of Antwerp (Belgium), Rotterdam and Zeebrugge (the Netherlands).
This will strengthen the port of Duisburg as a gateway for the onward transport of maritime freight within Europe. In addition, Hupac and duisport will jointly develop terminals along the Silk Road and work on solutions to reduce the journey times of Chinese trains. (ben)
