Kuebler invests in Mannheim

Construction is nearing completion on the multipurpose hall that Kübler Spedition is having built at its tri-modal terminal in Mannheim, Germany.

The multipurpose hall will house a 500-ton (453.6-tonne) capacity overhead crane, which will be delivered in the summer of 2018, with operations set to commence in July.

Kübler Spedition is investing in its Schwergutzentrum Mannheim terminal to develop the facilities into a hub for road and rail shipments, to better facilitate the transport of heavy and oversized cargo to deepsea ports by inland waterway.

The company says that there is not just political demand to move more cargoes off the roads onto railways and inland waterways, but in heavy cargo logistics, this approach is often necessary as a result of the ongoing decline in road and bridge infrastructure and ever-increasing regulatory restrictions.

Kübler Spedition, a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network in Germany, operates several handling facilities in the Mannheim Rheinauhafen, including a 10 ha (27.4 acre) open area.
