With a yearly throughput of 1.8 million TEU, Contargo is one of the leading container hinterland logistics networks in Europe. Contargo integrates container transport between the western seaports, Germany's North Sea ports and the European hinterland. The Contargo network concept is based on three components:
- Contargo's own terminals as nodal points
- Contargo's own barge and rail transport lines as interconnections
- Order processing by competent central and decentralised customer service organisations
This concept makes Contargo the partner of choice for sea carriers, forwarders and all other players along the intermodal logistics chain in Europe.
Contargo operates container depots and interim storage at the terminals and offers a wide range of container services including local collection and delivery of containers by truck, maintenance and repair, and stuffing and stripping. Contargo combines the advantages of the three transport modes of inland navigation, road and rail in an integrated transport concept. Fixed routes and frequent scheduled departures form the basis for fast, reliable, efficient container transports.
Consistent, integrated processes and IT systems ensure the fast, smooth throughput of containers. As well as handling between barge, rail and truck Contargo also takes on the document processing.
Contargo is present in Germany, the Netherlands, France and Switzerland
Of course, Contargo maintains the highest safety standards in the day-to-day operation of all its partners and these standards are stringently controlled - for example regarding ADR 1.10 and ISPS regulations and voluntarily observation of the stipulations of the US Customs -Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT).
