APM Terminals has a 30% share in the EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven, Germany’s only deep-water container terminal. With a navigation channel with a draft of 18m, the world’s largest container vessels have unrestricted access to the port at all times.
The EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven is an ideal transhipment hub for feeder services to Scandinavia, the Baltics and Russia. Its strategic location and optimum links to the hinterland also make it an ideal hub for the Rhine/Ruhr region. The terminal has a direct link to the A29 motorway, so that trucks do not have to contend with congested traffic intersections.
An intermodal rail terminal directly adjacent to the terminal site additionally provides connections to the European rail network. Thanks to a 16-track marshalling yard, fast and easy train configuration and shunting is guaranteed. A logistics zone directly adjoins the terminal.
