Container Terminal Emmerich


Welcome to Contargo Rhein-Waal-Lippe in Emmerich!

We are your container specialists in the Lower Rhine region. Our terminal in Emmerich near the Dutch border is closer to the western ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp than any other German inland port. Travelling from Emmerich to Rotterdam takes just 12 hours, while Antwerp can be reached in 14 hours.

At our trimodal terminal boasting two container gantry cranes and storage capacity in excess of 4,000 TEU, we set standards for speed and creativity in organising and managing your container traffic. An efficient and reliable transport process is ensured by way of high-frequency barge connections and fixed-window agreements with all the relevant terminals in the western ports.

Thanks to our favourable geographical location, our terminal taps the sales markets in the Lower Rhine, Rhine-Ruhr and Münsterland as well as the neighbouring Dutch regions of Liemers and Achterhoek.

Our current terminal extension of 9,000 square metres gives you wide-ranging options in respect of depot and storage activities.

Our portfolio is rounded off by professional hazardous goods and reefer handling and additional services for your containers such as value-added services or repairs.

You won’t get lost in the crowd with us. Plot a course for the port of Emmerich and we will find the right solution for your transport operations.
