The largest combined terminal along the Danube River is operated by WienCont - a subsidiary of the Port of Vienna - on an area 120,000 m² in size. It offers a full range of services and is one of Europe's most modern terminals, featuring a unique double-sided momentum-driven gateway for locomotives ("Schwungeinfahrt") and a direct rail connection.
Container loads in the range of 6 to 45 tonnes are handled by overhead cranes with a maximum lifting power of 45 tonnes each (there have been three of them since 2013) as well as mobile handling equipment. Additionally, the Port of Vienna boasts a modern motor pool. Approximately 90 block trains per week travel to the major European seaports (Hamburg, Rotterdam etc.).
Boasting a container space of over 10,000 TEU, WienCont’s depot provides sufficient storage, checking and repair capacities and has been used by ship owners, leasing firms and forwarding agents for centuries. Excellently trained checkers are available to perform container checks in conformity with modern standards.
Stuffing and stripping of containers
Container transshipment operations - stuffing and stripping of containers (trimodal handling options) with loads between 6 and 45 tonnes - are performed by overhead cranes (three since 2013) as well as mobile handling equipment. Block trains travel to the European seaports (Hamburg, Rotterdam, Duisburg etc.) several times a day. The port premises accommodate four rail tracks for block trains with a length of 700 m each.
