Unifeeder to use Eurogate as hub

   Unifeeder, a major European feeder and short-sea operator, will consolidate its short-sea transport operations through the Eurogate terminal in the Waltershof section of Hamburg, Germany.
   “Many of Unifeeder’s customers, including automotive manufacturers and suppliers, depend on seamless transport and supply chains to support their manufacturing processes,” said Eurogate in a press release. “One of the goals of this partnership is to reinforce the link between short-sea transport operations at the Port of Hamburg and rail freight handling, allowing Unifeeder to respond more quickly and flexibly to customer demands. The advantages of the Eurogate Container Terminal Hamburg location were one of the main reasons for the decision: the Eurokombi intermodal rail station is located directly adjacent to the container terminal and guarantees short distances between ship and rail transport.”
    “This is the start of what we hope will be a long-term partnership,” said Timm Niebergall, managing director of Unifeeder Germany. “With as many as 20 departures a week, Hamburg is our biggest hub in northern Europe, with the highest departure frequency. Via Hamburg we forward goods destined for the U.K., Scandinavia, Finland, Russia and Poland, including the Baltic States, for our customers from industry and the freight forwarding sector.
   “One focus is on transports for the chemical and automotive industries. In this segment we regularly tranship higher volumes destined for the Russian market. Should our concept prove successful, we intend to extend the partnership with Eurogate to other locations. Bremerhaven is interesting as a gateway for transports from the northern Ruhr and Emsland region. Naturally there is also the option to integrate Wilhelmshaven into our service network. In the next few years we are looking to achieve growth together with Eurogate as a short-sea hub in Hamburg – and possibly also elsewhere,” he added.
