Timberports – Integrated Timber Logistics at One Site

Customers can access a wide range of services at the timber port. Customised rail logistics solutions are available at any time.

Decoupling road and rail logistics

We understand the requirements of the timber industry and work constantly on innovative concepts to transport timber products even more sustainably and efficiently. With the timberports, flexible logistics areas have been created to bundle the timber and thus enable a decoupling of road and rail. The aim is to keep the pre-carriage by truck as short as possible, which is not only efficient but also benefits the environment, as the main leg of the journey is by environmentally friendly rail.

Timber ports boost flexibility

Timberports simplify logistics processes for the first mile by road and main leg by rail. Lorries can deliver at any time and can get back on the road to collect more supplies from the forest after just a brief stop. This means that timberports boost the flexibility and efficiency of the partners involved in the raw timber supply chain.
