DUSS Terminal at Billwerder

Situated in the quarter of Billwerder, the DUSS Terminal Hamburg was built in 1993. Since then, the terminal has served as an important interface for the transshipment of loading units between road and rail as well as in national and international interchange of goods trains. The Hamburg-Billwerder terminal links up various routes of transport operators from Southern Europe to Scandinavia, some of these with more than 20 single-destination trains per day. It is one of the most modern freight terminals in Europe. In 2012, a third crane runway was added to the terminal to increase the handling capacity. To provide the basis for future growth, the gantry cranes were fully renewed in 2021. Fast rail connections in all directions are ensured through easy access to the Hamburg-Berlin main line as well as Hamburg’s freight railway network. Conveniently located in the east of Hamburg, the terminal also has excellent connections to the municipal road network and the A1 motorway.
