The path to success starts with an efficient transport concept.

Your benefits as a duisport customer: Maximum efficiency through dependable and cost-effective multimodal transportation chains.

In the Port of Duisburg, you can bundle sufficient volumes of freight flows and establish competitive transport concepts with optimum pre and onward carriage. In the case of combined traffic, most of the distance is covered by rail or ship in order to utilize the economic advantages offered by these transport methods for long distances and high freight transport capacities. Pre and onward carriage by truck for small distributions is kept as short as possible.

duisport plays a central role in international rail transport; it is the leading rail transport hub in Europe, acting as a gateway to the large seaports.

Every year, duisport connects 30 national and international railway service providers and operators with 25,000 trains that depart to more than 80 destinations throughout Europe, such as Antwerp, and to transcontinental destinations, such as Chongqing, China.

At the port itself, duisport’s own trains provide local feeder services, ensuring seamless connections between the various terminals.

In combined transportation, Duisburg links the seaports on the North Sea with the production and logistics locations of the Rhine-Ruhr region: For example, duisport’s own shuttle train has a daily connection from Duisburg to Antwerp, and since the beginning of the year a weekly connection links Duisburg with the JadeWeserPort, Germany’s only deep water harbor.

The regional shuttle trains operated by duisport offer connections to:

  • Marl (Chemical Park)
  • Marl (Metro warehouse)
  • Bönen
