Who we are

Initiated by the ad-hoc working group on intermodal terminals in 2007 and boosted by the Marco Polo Common Learning Project AGORA in 2009/2010, the terminal managers have established a permanent platform for collaboration:

the Terminal Interest Group 

Members are generally business entities and not natural persons even if the business entities shall be represented by one or more persons who shall follow the working group proceedings continuously.

The members of the Terminal Interest Group are representing any category of intermodal terminal with regard to the combined transport market segment provided at their facilities (continental and/or container hinterland service) and their location, at:

  • Seaports (e.g. Hamburg),
  • Ferry ports (e.g. Lübeck),
  • Inland ports (e.g. Duisburg, Neuss, Linz, Strasbourg), or
  • “Dry” inland sites (e.g. Köln, Wien, Graz, Bologna).

The terminals offer a variety of services (transhipment, shunting, trucking, maintenance and repair, depot, …) and are linked to each other and third parties by intermodal services.

The current 21 member companies operate more than 40 intermodal terminals with a total capacity of about 5 million loading units. AGORA terminals achieved a handling volume of around 3.8 million loading units in the "Corona year" 2020 and expect a further increase in traffic in 2021.
