Modal-Split in Container Traffic

    Sea and hinterland transports are closely linked. As Europe's largest railway port, the Port of Hamburg plays its trump card here. The modal split describes the volume distribution of goods handled via the port between rail, inland waterway and truck. In 2020, 92 million tonnes of goods were transported. With a share of 50.7 percent in million tonnes, railway transport is ahead of truck transport with 40.3 percent and inland waterway transport with 9 percent.

    Ranked in million tonnes, truck transport continues to lead with 50.4 per cent, followed by rail (47 per cent) and inland waterways with 2.6 per cent. Every week, the rail transport companies (EVT) offer almost 2000 container train connections. Every day they connect Europe's largest railway port to all economic inland regions and many European countries.
