Press Release

Advancements in the only Inland Port on the German Moselle

Trier, 03.01.2024. Located near Belgium and France and in close proximity to Luxembourg, the Port of Trier serves as a central logistics hub for the Greater Moselle Region, Eifel, Hunsrück, Saarland, and Luxembourg.

Following recent years’ positive developments in the port operations and the container terminal, Trierer Hafengesellschaft mbH remains committed to reaching its economic and transport policy goals innovatively and sustainably. The following steps in the port’s growth include expanding the container terminal and realizing a multi-user logistics hall that will be directly connected to it. 

Moreover, the Port of Trier serves as a digital testing ground for the traffic control of the port railway, and it is also involved in the research project called “TOLKIEN”, which develops a digital twin of the physical processes in the port.

To continue the positive trend, the focus in the forthcoming weeks lies on acquiring new partners who will actively and constructively accompany and shape the already ongoing steps, particularly the expansion and further development of the multi-modal terminal, starting from January 1, 2025. The contract of the current terminal operator is set to expire on December 31, 2024.
