Cosco and Duisport partner to develop new rail gateway to Europe



Port of Duisburg (Duisport) and Cosco Shipping are partnering to develop the largest inland container terminal in Europe with the goal of transforming the German river port into the main gateway for rail traffic on the China-Europe rail network. While Duisport is already the largest inland port in Europe and a main rail hub for China traffic, the proposed terminal will more that double the amount of China-bound trains handled to 100 per week, generating annual throughput of about 850,000 TEU. The terminal would require an investment of $110M. Construction is set to begin in 2020 and be completed in 2022.
