Wilhelmshaven, 10 January 2023  

Wilhelmshaven, Germany’s only deep-water port, will be part of EUROGATE’s combined transport network starting from the 16th of January. Moreover, the company seeks to expand Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven (CTW)’s connections to Ulm, Mannheim and Frankfurt am  

Trains will operate with electric traction between the CTW and main German hinterland locations, thus upholding Wilhelmshaven’s sustainable goals, which also intends to expand its intermodal network in southern and western Germany in the coming months.

Moreover, according to EUROGATE Intermodal GmbH (EGIM), “the expansion of rail infrastructure between Wilhelmshaven and regions along the Rhine will further accelerate these developments and change the flow of cargo, as trains will be able to travel directly and efficiently to the quayside in Lower Saxony”.

The development of Wilhelmshaven’s intermodal network and the future possibilities are not restricted to EGIM’s new services. Indeed, more companies seem willing to include the deep-water port in their networks. For instance, TX Logistik, will also integrate Wilhelmshaven into its network and start transporting hinterland traffic from mid-January 2023 to Nuremberg and Kornwestheim. Like EGIM, the company is planning to add more connections by mid-2023.
