TX Logistik, subsidiary of Mercitalia Group, will integrate the deep-water port of Jade-Weser-Port Wilhelmshaven into its network. It will start transporting hinterland traffic from mid-January 2023 to Nuremberg and Kornwestheim. More destinations will be added in the first half of 2023.

The decision to incorporate the port was made based on the forecast volume growth at Jade-Weser Port. According to experts, the volume handled will increase further in the coming year when the container shipping company Hapag-Lloyd and other members
of the shipping consortium “The Alliance” will start their first Far East service.

Line modernised

The rail line between Oldenburg and Wilhelmshaven has recently been double-tracked and fully electrified. With the completion of all construction work by the end of 2022, the nearly 70-kilometer route can be operated with modern electric locomotives in 2023.

This will ensure efficient traction and significantly improve the accessibility of the logistics hub Jade-Weser port for freight trains, says the operator. TX Logistik is currently working on the final details. In parallel, discussions are being held with potential users of the new connection, which is to be offered as part of the boxXpress production platform.
