Germany – Germersheim
Germersheim is DP World’s tri-modal terminal on the river Rhine in Germany. Strategically located just south of Mannheim, it is in an excellent location to service a wide belt of local hinterland rich in both export and import cargo.
The terminal currently operates three river berths, and expanded in 2009 with a 3rd crane as part of a general expansion phase. DP World’s own fleet of dedicated barges serves terminals in Antwerp, Rotterdam and Moerdijk from Germersheim. The barge operation is complimented by on-dock and adjacent rail terminals. Both operations are supported by the terminal’s own fleet of road vehicles and chassis for local receipt and delivery.
Germersheim also offers full reefer capabilities, connecting reefers on the terminal, truck as well as on board of the barges. Container maintenance and cleaning is also offered as part of the total package.
As the need for smooth logistics operations within a congested Western European heartland becomes more critical, DP World’s Germersheim terminal is ideally positioned as a key point of linkage with DP World’s deep sea terminals in Antwerp and other terminals on the North Sea coast.
