Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe GmbH

On the Lower Rhine near Germany’s border to the Netherlands, the Contargo Group operates two terminals which together make up Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe GmbH. Located at Emmerich and Voerde-Emmelsum, they represent a kind of “advance outpost” for the western seaports: here, all the preliminary processes for sea transport are organised and seamless handling takes place between the seaports and the European hinterland.

In recent decades the Lower Rhine – like the Ruhr region – underwent a process of deep structural change, transforming itself from a coalmining area to a region that is active in the service sector. In the Wesel district alone, which is a part of the borough of Voerder, more than 30,000 mining jobs were lost. Free spaces that had always been intended for industrial use now offer excellent conditions for trade and industry – and of course for logistics, because wherever goods are manufactured and traded, new supply chains arise. Around twelve percent of all employees in the region who are in jobs carrying social insurance are already working in the logistics sector.

Both terminals of Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe GmbH, in Emmerich and Voerde-Emmelsum, lie directly on the Rhine. Thus they are directly connected to the ARA ports – Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam – and also to the German canal network, Alsace and Switzerland. They have fast motorway access to the Ruhr region, Emsland and Münsterland as well as the Benelux states. Both sites have rail sidings and fixed rail schedules.

“The Lower Rhine is an excellent location for combined transport. As well as its closeness to the ARA ports, it convinced us by its trimodal transport connections, the space available for expansion, the good overall infrastructure and the welcome development of ongoing economic growth in the region. Its situation at the margin of the Ruhr conurbation, its closeness to the borders of the Benelux countries, and the great numbers of large companies with a demand for logistics offer ideal conditions for our container services. Not least, we are motivated by the good cooperation with the Port of Emmerich and the DeltaPort port association.”

More about the Terminal in Emmerich

More about the Terminal in Emmelsum

Goto first page
Both terminals of Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe GmbH are trimodal, meaning that their customers can organise their transport chains making use of more eco-friendly combined transport. The company is certified according to ISO 14001 and the Emmerich terminal switched to 100 percent green electricity several years ago now. Many employees use the “Jobrad” scheme to acquire company bicycles. The whole of the company premises in the Port of Emmelsum are equipped with eco-friendly, economical LED lighting. And in October 2017 a hybrid reach stacker went into operation which has lower fuel consumption and lower carbon dioxide emissions than conventional machines

Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe is excellently positioned in the expanding economic region on the Lower Rhine. And in commercial regions of the Netherlands there are also companies that turn to Contargo as a partner for the transport of their products and raw materials. For the terminals of CRWL, with their important functions in proximity to the western seaports, this means they will be meeting a growing demand rather than just a continuing demand – the further expansion of the two locations is already being planned.

Emmerich

Directly on the German border to the Netherlands lies the terminal in Emmerich, previously known as the Rhein-Waal-Terminal. Until the end of 2016 Contargo held a 37.6 interest in the terminal; on 1 January 2017 this was increased to a 50 percent share. The second shareholder is Port Emmerich Infrastruktur- und Immobilien GmbH. The terminal in Emmerich, which enjoys high capacity utilisation, is closer than any other German inland port to the major North Sea ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. The trimodal terminal focuses principally on customers from the northern Lower Rhine area and the Netherlands.

“Our recipe for success rests on the individual customer service provided by our dedicated team, plus our unique geographical position. As a result, we are operating close to capacity – although a further increase in volume would be possible, because our catchment area includes the Dutch province of Gelderland, where several big industrial parks are developing at present. Our customers also include prestigious companies in the Lower Rhine region, and several big logistics enterprises that use our terminal as an interface to the western seaports.”

From 1987 the Rhein-Waal-Terminal GmbH was the company operating the container terminal in the industrial port of Emmerich. In 1995 Combined Container Service (CCS) took on a 37.6 percent share in the company. With the takeover of CCS by Contargo this share passed to the Contargo Group.

On 1 January 2017 Contargo increased its interest in Rhein-Waal-Terminal from 37.6 percent to 50 percent. Since then, the terminal has operated under the name of Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe GmbH. The company operates both the terminal in Emmerich and the terminal in Voerde-Emmelsum. The entrepreneurial management is performed by Contargo, and the port site and port infrastructure in Emmerich remain the property of Port Emmerich Infrastruktur- und Immobilien GmbH.

As the terminal in Emmerich is already sometimes reaching its capacity limits today, an extension of the terminal on the land side is planned. If the international flow of containers should continue to increase, there are already plans for an extension on the water side.

The terminal in Emmerich has two rail sidings, each 250 metres long. This good infrastructure, and the connections to the western seaports and the European hinterland, offer ideal conditions for container transports by rail.

The terminal in Emmerich is situated at Rhine kilometre 851 and has a wharf length of over 300 metres with moorings for two barges. Every day several barges from Contargo’s own fleet and the vessels of partner enterprises call here, including six scheduled barges bound for Rotterdam and three more for Antwerp. The transit time Rotterdam-Emmerich is 10 hours (downstream) and 14 hours (upstream). Antwerp is only 14 hours away (downstream) or 16 hours (upstream). These connections also link Emmerich with the other Contargo terminals along the Rhine.

The German motorway A3 is quickly accessible from the Port of Emmerich for the delivery and on-carriage of containers. In 2018 a new motorway exit will be opened, meaning that the motorway will be only four kilometres away instead of eight. Numerous separate parking spaces for trucks ensure a seamless traffic flow at the terminal.

Emmelsum

The Port of Emmelsum lies directly on the Rhine at kilometre 813, at the mouth of the Wesel-Datteln Canal. It is one of three ports that make up the consolidated port association DeltaPort in the district of Wesel. Since the beginning of 2017 Contargo has been operating a trimodal container terminal here, offering industry in the area around the mouth of the river Lippe an easily accessible link to the ARA ports.

"When implementing our plans in the Port of Emmelsum we needed a lot of perseverance. But it was worth the effort, not only because we can take some of the pressure off our colleagues in Emmerich – we have also succeeded already in convincing quite a few customers of the merits of our location, and they now have their containers processed with us.”

Zeitstrahl

“We are happy to be able to offer Contargo an excellent infrastructure for a high-performance trimodal terminal that closes the gap between Emmerich and Duisburg. Not only does the terminal have ample capacities – it is also well away from the daily traffic gridlock in the big conurbations. And for many customers in the region, it shortens the ‘last mile’ of the journey by road.”

With a ceremonial “first lift” of a container, all participants, including representatives from politics, industry and the media as well as customers, celebrated the formal opening of the new terminal in Emmelsum, in the district of Wesel. The five speakers at the ceremony, (from l. to r.) Voerde‘s Lord Mayor Dirk Haarmann; Peter Hinze, Lord Mayor of Emmerich; Andreas Stolte, Managing Director of DeltaPort; Klemens Rethmann, CEO of Rhenus Logistics; and Karl Borkes, Treasurer of the Wesel Administrative District – jointly activated a symbolic red buzzer on the deck of a passenger ship facing the container terminal, thus signalling the official start of operations.

If required the terminal can be extended by another 13,000 square metres. This will create space for a second container crane and more rail sidings, and increase depot capacity at the terminal to 1,700 TEU. The expansion could increase the handling volume to as much as 65,000 units annually.

A wharf 330 metres long provides berths for two inland vessels. The Emmelsum terminal is connected by inland waterway with many other Contargo container depots, meaning that thanks to high frequencies, containers can be transported quickly from one terminal to another. Via Emmelsum, scheduled barge services connect the Lower Rhine with the western seaports.
