Course set for future orientation

Trier, 17 December 2021. Despite the pandemic, the Port of Trier once again delivers a positive balance for the past year. Around 1.45 million tons of ship and rail cargo were handled in Trier in 2021, almost equally divided between ship and rail.

To make the port fit for the future, the course has been set in recent months for further development of the port’s infrastructure and the digitization of processes. With the aim of further utilizing free capacities and thus taking more goods off the road, the Port of Trier is set to develop into the logistics hub of the greater region.

Digitization of processes

Together with IT service provider Akquinet, the Port of Trier has developed and implemented a cloud solution to digitize its processes. To ensure that inland shipping integrates even more effectively into intermodal logistics chains that are often already organized digitally, the port is also involved in the mFUND1) research project SINLOG. The SINLOG digital blockchain platform, which aims to interlink the interfaces of various logistics providers, is currently in its final phase.

AHOI art exhibition

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Trierer Hafengesellschaft mbH, the Port of Trier invited 16 artists to “draw” a picture of their port. In painting, photography, sound and video art, as well as graffiti and prints, they interpret the Port of Trier and its connections to other European ports. The exhibition will be held at the European Academy of Arts from March 4 to April 17, 2022. See for more details.
