Hamm goes mobile and becomes multimodal

An exciting project for climate-friendly rail freight transport is currently being planned in Hamm (Westphalia). The once largest German marshalling yard will in future be a multimodal rail logistics hub with innovative loading technology that connects rail, road and waterways. On a 60-hectare site, DB Cargo is developing a multi-hub for sustainable freight transport together with the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the city of Hamm, the Railway and Transport Union (EVG) Hamm-Bielefeld and Kombiverkehr. If this is not a milestone for the city on the way to becoming a supra-regional and trimodal logistics hub!


Flagship project for climate-friendly rail freight transport in Europe

In the future, 170,000 truck journeys can be put on the climate-friendly rail via the new "MULTI HUB Westfalen" in order to transport goods to their destination with the lowest possible CO2 footprint. And, of course, also to promote the transport transition in the freight sector and to achieve the climate goals. Efficient mobility and climate protection: the topics of Kombiverkehr. In order to coordinate the further development of the plant in a targeted manner, a separate agency was founded, in which Kombiverkehr is involved with a stake of 5 percent.

"An important step in the right direction to further increase the share of rail transport. We want to promote sustainable freight transport and are therefore very pleased to participate in the conceptual implementation of the trimodal logistics area and to support the MULTI HUB Westfalen with our expertise."
Armin Riedl, Managing Director of Kombiverkehr KG
