Starting in July, DUSS customers can deliver truck trailers via the site of the future Duisburg Gateway Terminal (DGT). duisport then transports them with terminal vehicles via Schlickstraße and Sympherstraße to the DUSS CT hub. Direct road access will then be available in Duisburg-Ruhrort from summer 2023.
” In a good partnership, we have reached an agreement for more freight traffic on the climate-friendly rail. This solution will enable us to handle goods delivered by a truck even before the end of construction work on our own access road “, says Alexander Stern, Managing Director of DUSS. “In this way, we are promoting a modal shift from road to rail.”
“The solution now found is the result of trusting discussions between duisport, DB Netz and DUSS. The partners have worked hard to find a solution that benefits everyone. We are joining forces and are now getting started together,” says duisport CEO Markus Bangen.
The commissioning of the DB terminal is an important milestone in the course of the many local infrastructure measures that DUSS and duisport are currently pushing ahead with. The aim is to efficiently link the total of four future intermodal terminals in Ruhrort and Meiderich via roads within the port. Combined with intelligent traffic routing, this will relieve residents’ streets and noticeably reduce emissions and waiting times.
