Traffic Shift & Environmental Thought in Focus
The development of combined transport at the Port of Rostock has been steadily upward over the past decade. Last year, 2022, over 130,000 cargo units were handled at the CT terminal. This means that rail-based combined transport accounts for around 20% of the cargo volume handled by ferries and RoRo at the Port of Rostock.
In line with the ever-growing market demand for rail-based green logistics chains, a new “rail decade” is expected, for which ROSTOCK PORT continues to drive infrastructure development for the handling of unaccompanied loading units. Recently, the first full-train-length track for serving 720 meter trains by reachstacker, was handed over to the terminal operator Rostock Trimodal GmbH in August 2021 and put into operation.
