Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport), the Belgium port of Zeebrugge (Port of Zeebrugge) and the Cosco-Shipping Zeebrugge Terminal (CSP) have intensified their collaboration. Now the trilateral agreement regarding the new hinterland connection for combined rail transport has been formalized in a contract.

A weekly shuttle train transports goods between the Cosco-Shipping Zeebrugge Terminal and the Duisburg Intermodal Terminal (DIT) at logport I in the Port of Duisburg.
The operational processing of the train is handled by duisport subsidiary duisport agency GmbH (dpa). dpa is the central sales company providing solutions for traffic relations, transport chains and logistics. In this context, dpa draws on its extensive experience in intermodal transport solutions.
