176 km of tracks linking the ports with the hinterland

Strong connections Bremen’s port railway

Because of their traditional links with the railway, the ports of Bremen have well developed rail infrastructure and the terminal railway meanwhile covers a total length of 183 km. With stations in Bremerhaven, Bremen Grolland and at Bremen inland port, the port railway serves as an efficient interface between the hinterland and the transhipment terminals. The industrial through tracks which run to the freight village and Hemelingen also link up Bremen’s freight village (GVZ) and Hansalinie Bremen industrial park with the national rail network.

Efficient rail services are a crucial factor for the attractiveness of Bremen/Bremerhaven as a port and logistics location. The track infrastructure is therefore continuously being upgraded to cope with the sustained increase in traffic volumes that has been forecast for the coming years. Up to the year 2020, the focus will be on expanding the interim stabling capacities for the automobile and container terminals in Bremerhaven.
