Ludwigshafen, 15 September 2014. With effect from 1 September 2014, Contargo’s terminal in Germersheim is now operating as a part of Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH. By this integration, Contargo is supporting the site with the know-how and personnel resources of one of its largest groups of terminals. Until now the terminal was affiliated to Contargo Network Service GmbH & Co. KG.
“As a part of strategic development in the Rhine-Neckar Region – which includes forthcoming expansion measures at the sites in Ludwigshafen and Mannheim – we have made the decision to integrate terminal operation in Germersheim into Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH”, explains Konrad Fischer, Managing Director Contargo GmbH & Co. KG. Dietrich Jung, Terminal Operational Manager in Germersheim, will continue there in his present capacity.
The terminal in the Germersheim industrial port has two berths for inland vessels. There are weekly barge connections to Antwerp and Rotterdam. Conveniently situated between the terminals of Ludwigshafen and Wörth, the Germersheim location completes Contargo’s concept of a comprehensive, full-coverage network. A crane and a reach stacker are available for container handling. The on-site depot provides interim storage for up to 1000 TEU.
With an annual transport volume of 2 million TEU, Contargo is one of the largest container logistics networks in Europe. Contargo integrates container transport between the western seaports, the German North Sea ports and the European hinterland. The enterprise has 25 container terminals at its disposal in Germany, France, Switzerland and the Czech Republic and maintains offices at seven additional locations in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Japan.
