DP World to invest US$41 million in Stuttgart inland network

The major port operator DP World will invest US$41 million in its container terminal in Stuttgart in order to enhance its capacity for inland network operations.

Particularly, DP World Stuttgart, which recorded its 25th anniversary, will go through enhancement operations for the next three to five years as the UAE-based operator plans to further boost capacity at the trimodal terminal for rail and barge in a framework towards sustainability.

CEO of DP World Inland, Rob Harrison pointed out the benefits of the company's investment in the container terminal, saying that it will help to "strengthen our trimodal transport solutions, boost supply chain resiliency in the European mainland and consequently ensure the smooth flow of trade coming in and out of the port for many years to come."

Currently, DP World runs regular feeder services, connecting Stuttgart with Mannheim, Gemersheim and Basel, as well as with the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam, through barge services, while there are also frequent rail connections to Bremerhaven and Hamburg.
