Cuxport handles thousands of new cars for the Chinese market

CUXHAVEN, 17 November 2020 – Cuxport loaded more than 3,500 premium vehicles on board the “Tiger” and “Torino” vessels for the deep-sea RoRo scheduled services operated by the Wallenius-Wilhelmsen Group from Europe to China at the beginning of November. The handling procedures took place at the terminal’s berth 4 within just one week. All the vehicles reached the deep-sea port by environmentally-friendly rail services prior to this.

The premium vehicles left their production sites in southern Germany and were transported directly by rail to the automobile handling terminal in Cuxhaven. The vehicles were delivered in close cooperation with the manufacturer, the rail service companies involved and the shipping company in Cuxhaven. Cuxport then prepared the different vehicle models for shipment to three Chinese ports and handled the necessary customs clearance.

“We’ve been a close partner for handling vehicles for automobile manufacturers, particularly in the premium sector, for many years and have already reliably transhipped several million new cars at the Cuxport Terminal,” says Oliver Fuhljahn, Head of Business Development Automobile Logistics at Cuxport.
