the container freight station in duisburg (cfs)

The Container Freight Station (CFS) of Seacon Logistics is located in the heart of the world's largest inland container terminal: Duisburger Hafen AG (Duisport) in Duisburg. The port has undergone significant development over the centuries, thanks to its direct transportation connections by road, rail, and water, as well as its favourable location in the Ruhr area at the confluence of the Ruhr and Rhine rivers. 

Seacon Logistics' CFS Duisburg has a unique and central location within this important economic centre and logistics hotspot with tremendous growth potential. With the combination of our office, warehouse, and customs warehouse, this is the ideal starting point for organising all your transportation needs. On this page, we will show you why Duisburg is one of the most important gateways to global reach in terms of logistics and the wide range of logistics services we offer. 

what is a container freight station?

In addition to the possibility of consolidating goods, a Container Freight Station also provides complete logistics solutions for transportation, storage and customs clearance. The use of a CFS makes the transportation process more efficient and cost-effective. 

CFS Duisburg is located in one of the most important logistics hotspots in the world, directly adjacent to the largest inland container terminal in Duisburg with direct connections to and from Asia (New Silk Road) and next to Duisburg Gateway Terminal (the largest trimodal inland terminal). Partly because of this, this location will continue to grow in the coming years into the most interesting logistics hotspot in Europe.
