One of the Netherlands’ biggest inland rail terminals
Groningen Railport in Veendam is one of the Netherlands’ biggest inland rail terminals. Groningen Railport is especially important for containers as a logistics hub between the main ports in the west (Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Antwerp) and the north (Bremen, Hamburg). Groningen Railport is also connected to the European timetable for conventional rail transport. Together with Groningen’s sea ports – Eemshaven and Delfzijl – and the city of Groningen itself, Groningen Railport provides a complete northern logistics system.
Groningen Railport is a tri-modal terminal (accessible by rail, road and water) and processes both containers and conventional cargoes. Groningen Railport provides a total logistics service to shipping companies and transport companies alike. Groningen Railport has four 750 metre shuttle tracks, one of which is dedicated to conventional rail transport. The containers are handled with reach stackers. Groningen Railport provides loading and unloading facilities as well as ample storage options, also for classified goods. Storage locations and/or other logistics hubs with a direct link to Groningen Railport are included in the portfolio of Groningen Seaports.
REGIONAL CONTAINER HUB

These industries account for a large share of the outgoing transport movements. Also, containers filled with all sorts of products arrive every day at Veendam via the port of Rotterdam. Incoming and outgoing container transport takes place mainly by rail. Groningen Railport handles about 40,000 TEU of containers each year. The truck loading traffic is provided by DB Schenker and the trains are hauled by Husa Transportation Group.
