Rhenus Port Logistics invests in Sustainable Terminal in Basel


Rhenus Port Logistics is sending a clear signal for the sustainable expansion of infrastructure in Basel and investing in a new tri-modal transhipment terminal at the Port of Switzerland in Kleinhüningen. Construction of Terminal 4 should be completed in December 2023. It will enable efficient, climate-friendly transhipment of goods. In addition, a photovoltaic system is being installed on the roof, generating around 2.4 million kWh of electricity every year, thereby covering the total annual electricity consumption of Rhenus Port Logistics.

“The construction of the new Terminal 4 is a commitment to promoting sustainable infrastructure in the Basel region. We are proud to contribute to efficient, environmentally friendly transhipment of goods and guarantee our customers a future-proof collaboration”, says Andreas Stöckli, CEO of Rhenus Alpina.

Construction of Terminal 4 will replace both Terminal 8 (Satram-Halle) and Terminal 7 on the North Dock. Terminal 4 will comprise five hall sections with a total area of around 7,300 m2 and will be equipped with the latest technology, including five cranes with carrying capacities of up to 32 tonnes, excavators, forklifts, a rail receiving pit, modern rail and road weighbridges, and WLAN and video systems. In addition, one hall selection will be completely isolated for the transhipment and storage of sensitive steel products.
