Container terminal and TFG cooperate

WILHELMSHAVEN. Alternative transport concepts were required when the Rahmedetalbrücke (A45) bridge was closed. As a result, the Südwestfalen container terminal and German rail subsidiary TFG Transfracht introduced a solution in March, which transported dead wood and cuttings by rail from Siegen-Wittgenstein to JadeWeserPort, from where the wood is exported by ship. Before the bridge closed, lorries took the storm-damaged timber from the region to terminals in the Ruhr region, from where it was transported further. Timber is now taken directly from the Kreuztal terminal to Wilhelmshaven.
