NORDFROST Seaport-Terminal handles direct train from China in the container port of Wilhelmshaven

Wilhelmshaven, 13th July 2021 | The first direct train from China, which started its journey in the direction of the Wilhelmshaven container port in Hefei in the Anhui province on June 25th, will be processed at the NORDFROST seaport terminal after arriving at its destination.

“We are particularly looking forward to the direct train that reaches us from China,” says Britta Bartels, managing partner of NORDFROST, “because it will bring more interesting cargo flows to Germany’s only deep-water container port offering many opportunities and potentials. The port is now becoming even more attractive.” Philipp Brandstrup, Branch Manager NORDFROST Seehafen-Terminal adds: “In Wilhelmshaven we offer to importers and exporters from all sectors needs-based solutions and an uncomplicated and fast processing of goods flows. Like this this we can meet the requirements of the shippers as well as possible and thus promote the port.” The perspective integration of the location in the New Silk Road would bring the best opportunities for the further development of the port.
