Combined Cargo

Handling of intermodal load units in Intermodal Transport in the year 2019 increased to 87,000 units in 2019 and thus by an impressive 11.5 percent.

Currently there are 30 intermodal trains operating weekly to and from Verona (15), Treviso (2) and Cervignano (3) in Italy, to and from Brno (3) and Lovosice (4) in the Czech Republic, to and from Wuppertal (3) and Halle/Schkopau (1) in Germany as well as Curtici (1) in Romania.  

The trend on the south-eastern axis, which has seen distinct growth in recent years and offers further potential, is very gratifying. Especially the connections to the Czech Republic are under further development; the connection to Lovosice for instance will be strengthened by another departure per week from February.

Excellent conditions

The Rostock port is optimal connected with the German motorway network. North-south motorway A19 and west-east motoway A20 provide a direct access to the port.

The proximity of the terminal to the ferry and ro-ro berths provides short transit times through the port (e.g. train arrival at 2:45, loading at 6:00). Ideal conditions for the optimisation of the logistics chain are provided here at the Rostock seaport.

Since May 2012 ROSTOCK PORT GmbH has been converting the intermodal transport terminal south of pier I together with the regional construction company STRABAG AG without interrupting its day-to-day business. The new and efficient handling terminal for rail, road and seaborne cargo will be upgraded until February 2014 on an area of around 30,000 square metres. The whole Intermodal Transport Terminal covers approx. 70,000 square metres.

Apart from three additional tracks and the southern craneway girder the entire southern handling areas were newly built and construction of two gantry crane facilities was begun.
