In the heart of the Ruhr area - Germany's most important industrial center - Hutchison Ports Duisburg offers the fastest and most efficient access to Germany as a trimodal terminal. Under the name Hutchison Ports Europe Intermodal (HPEI), Hutchison Ports Duisburg offers transport services to and from the ports of Rotterdam and several inland destinations. Hutchison Ports Duisburg is one of the extended gates within the Hutchison Ports Europe Intermodal network.
The inland terminal is connected daily by inland shipping and rail to the deepsea terminals of ECT in Rotterdam and several times a week to Antwerp. For many shipping companies, Rotterdam is the first & last port of call in Europe. Transport via Rotterdam, instead of via Hamburg, can therefore often be a few days faster.
In addition, Hutchison Ports Duisburg is also a shortsea terminal. Located directly on the Rhine, Hutchison Ports Duisburg has almost one kilometer of quay with three gantry cranes and two 700-metre railway tracks. Via the adjacent DUSS rail terminal, Hutchison Ports Duisburg is also connected to more than 70 (rail) destinations throughout Europe.
Hutchison Ports Duisburg operates 24/7, is AEO and ISPS certified, has open access for all and is a depot for all major shipping lines.
