The EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven has been included in the feeder network schedule of Seago Line, a company belonging to the A.P. Moeller-Maersk Group.
Germany’s only deep-water container terminal is now port of call for the “Russia Express Service”, which will call at Wilhelmshaven once a week on Sundays. The first vessel in this feeder service is the MAERSK Venice with a length of 180 m, a beam of 28 m and a transport capacity of 1,350 TEUs.
The Russia Express Service is the third scheduled container service to include the container port, which opened for operations on 21 September 2012, on its transport route. The service guarantees a reliable connection from Wilhelmshaven to the Baltic states. In addition to the feeder service, two Maersk Line main shipping services are currently calling at the terminal on a weekly basis. One of these is a Far East service and the other a Central America service.
