A new multimodal terminal was opened in Horb, Germany, near Stuttgart. The Black Forest Terminal, as it is named, will for now launch train services to the port of Hamburg. Trains will run twice a week, while the route will be operated by the German operator Necoss.
The terminal has two tracks; one is 315 metres long and the other 350 metres. The Black Forest Terminal will be used for the transport of containers, semi-trailers and swap bodies. For the loading and unloading of trains, the terminal is equipped with a crane that can handle a maximum weight of 45 tons.
