In addition to the existing terminal, Contargo is to take on another 11,000 m2 area in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum from DeltaPort. Contargo has won a Europe-wide call for tender by DeltaPort for an additional area in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum. In the next few years the 11,000 m2 site, situated next to Contargo’s existing terminal, will enlarge the present premises and extend the quay length by a further 130 metres. In future, it will be possible to handle two barges plus a block train at the terminal in parallel. Additional storage space for 800 more containers will soon be available.
By doing this, Contargo wants to expand its services in the Lower Rhine and northern Ruhr area, keeping pace with the development of the logistics location initiated by DeltaPort, with large-scale settlement of companies and the resultant increase in handling volumes in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum and the Rhine-Lippe port of Wesel.
The company operating the terminal, Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe GmbH, has been organising integrated container logistics by barge and rail for customers in the Lower Rhine and northern Ruhr area since 2017.
