Contargo adds intermodal terminals

Contargo, part of Rhenus group, has taken over the Wincanton container terminals on the Rhine corridor

The intregation follows the purchase of Wincanton's remaining European operations by Rhenus Logistics last year http://www.worldcargonews.com/htm/w20110921.238814.htm

Contargo took over the facilities in January and is now proceeding to integrate them into its trimodal distribution network. When this process is completed, Contargo will operate a total of 25 terminals with a staff of 800 people in Germany, the Netherlands, France and Switzerland.

For example, Contargo will combine its "new" locations in Mainz and Frankfurt-Ost with Contargo Terminal Koblenz as “Contargo Rhein -Main.” The Ludwigshafen and Mannheim terminals will become “Contargo Rhein-Neckar.” The Contargo terminal at Wörth will be merged with the terminal in Karlsruhe as “Contargo Wörth-Karlsruhe.” In the Netherlands, Rhine-Container BV in Zwijndrecht will remain as an independent trade mark. Trucking capacity will also be expanded.

Konrad Fischer, who was Wincanton's intermodal transport manager in Mannheim, has joined Thomas Löffler and Heinrich Kerstgens on the management of Contargo.
