Excellent transport links

Situated close to the Luxembourg border at the confluence of the Moselle and Saar rivers, the Port of Trier is a trimodal transport hub offering custom solutions involving waterway, rail and road transport.

Inland waterway transport on the Moselle and Saar rivers

The Port of Trier has a direct link to the inland waterways of the Saar (91 km) and Moselle (364 km), which in turn are linked to the European network of inland waterways, for example via the Rhine to the Main and Danube and to the major north German waterways to the east and west.

MM Multi Modal Shuttle operates a regular container line service between Trier and Bonn, providing a reliable link between the regional economy and the seaports of Antwerp, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam. Twice weekly, one of the vessels makes a scheduled call at the Port of Trier on its journey up and down the river Moselle.

Rail transport

Our port is connected directly to the Trier-Ehrang rail junction, the former marshalling yard infrastructure of which is now used for freight transport. A full service is available for freight transport by rail, and goods can be transported quickly from here in any direction: 


In addition, the Am Zehnhoff-Söns Group terminal operator operates a direct container train link to the seaports of Antwerp and Rotterdam three times a week.

We have a well-developed rail network with which the transport of freight by rail is assured.

Motorway and major highway network

The Port of Trier is directly accessible from the motorway and is superbly integrated into the motorway and highway network of the greater Trier-Luxembourg region and south-west Germany. The Trier area is connected to seven motorways and major highways, running in all directions and providing access to the whole of Europe. The excellent network enables the “final mile” in the logistics chain to be coordinated seamlessly by truck.
