Denmark’s Port of Esbjerg is looking for a private operator to run and develop its new combi terminal, and is inviting interested parties to submit an Expression of Interest.
Construction began earlier this year in the Sydhavn section of the port. The combi terminal consists of two tracks and covers a total area of 48.000 sq. m. The terminal connects the port with the rail network, providing the opportunity to tranship and manage freight efficiently.
According to the port, the purpose of the terminal is to ensure a better connection between road, rail and sea, thus strengthening intermodal freight transport. The project builds on the Danish parliament‘s agreement in spring 2013 for “a green transport policy“ and is in line with the European Commission’s goal of moving 30% of the goods transported by road in Europe to rail or sea by 2030.
