Wilhelmshaven Reinforces Rail Link to the Rhine-Ruhr Region

EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven has extended its rail connections to the Rhine-Ruhr region. Container trains will now operate once weekly between EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven and Container Terminal Dortmund. The Rhine-Ruhr region is one of Germany’s most important economic centers with a high foreign trade share and is among the world’s major metropolitan regions.

Besides connections to the Europe-wide rail network, Dortmund’s port is linked to all major German and European inland ports via the canal network. In April, Duisport established a weekly connection between Wilhelmshaven and Duisburg Port. Rail services to and from the container port in Wilhelmshaven have been extended since April 2017. In the meantime, Rail Terminal Wilhelmshaven handles up to 25 container trains a week.

Container Terminal Dortmund operates two terminals in Dortmund for the combined transport of goods. The terminal went into operation in early 2016 and has four tracks with a length of 724 metres each. The container trains run once a week on Wednesdays from Dortmund and on Thursdays from Wilhelmshaven. The trains each have a freight capacity of 100 TEUs.
