Terminal extension in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum  

Press Release 29 Jun 2022


In addition to the existing terminal, Contargo is to take on another 11,000 m2 area in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum from DeltaPort – the container terminal extension is to be completed by 2025.  

Contargo GmbH & Co. KG has won a Europe-wide call for tender by DeltaPort GmbH & Co. KG for an additional area in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum. In the next few years the 11,000 m2 site, situated next to Contargo’s existing terminal, will enlarge the present premises and extend the quay length by a further 130 metres. By doing this, Contargo wants to expand its services in the Lower Rhine and northern Ruhr area, keeping pace with the development of the logistics location initiated by DeltaPort, with large-scale settlement of companies and the resultant increase in handling volumes in the port of Voerde-Emmelsum and the Rhine-Lippe port of Wesel.
