Funding application submitted for Dock Basin 3
As part of the trimodal Gateway Basel Nord container terminal project, the Port of Switzerland has submitted a funding application for Dock Basin 3 to the Swiss Federal Office of Transport.
The planned dock basin will link the container terminal to the inland shipping network so that the growing container traffic volumes can be accommodated over the long term. Dock Basin 3 will also strengthen the competitiveness of Basel as a freight transshipment site, secure jobs in the region and promote the transfer of freight traffic from road to rail. The construction of Dock Basin 3 is an important investment in the future.
