Terminal Wustermark with new owner
The terminal for combined transport (rail- road) in the freight village Berlin West Wustermark has a new owner – the BahnLogistik Terminal Wustermark GmbH (BLTW).
The Havelländische Eisenbahn AG (HVLE) is the main shareholder; furthermore the BUG Vermietungsgesellschaft mbH and the IPG- und Projektentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH as the developer of the 3 freight villages around Berlin are involved.
"This move will strengthen the railway hub Wustermark" said the new Managing Director Martin Wischner. "Through synergies with the marshalling yard Wustermark, we can develop Wustermark as an effective hub in north-south and east-west direction."
The terminal is directly connected by rail to the Berlin outer circle line. The terminal construction was supported by federal funds and is open to all railway contractors. There are 2 transhipment tracks with an effective length of 720 m (operating length 610 m) available. The extension of two additional transhipment tracks and a high performance portal crane is feasible.
"With the change of the ownership and the search for a new terminal operator, the heart of the freight village will be revived step by step. Moreover the extraordinarily positive development of the site in recent years, with 2,500 new jobs and 26 established companies will be continued," said Rüdiger Hage, Managing Director of IPG.
The terminal Wustermark plays a central role for the blocktrain concepts developed within the Scandria-corridor.
