In the ferry transport sector, which accounts for 85 percent of the port’s transhipment volumes, a total of nearly 240,000 load units was transhipped in 2020. This is a growth of 2.3 percent, whereby the number of unaccompanied trailers has increased above average. The establishment of the block train connection from and to Bettembourg (Luxemburg) operating three times a week has made a major contribution to this result. At the Schwedenkai, it is now 25 percent of the cargo transported by the Stena Line shipping company that arrives in or leaves Kiel by rail.

The intermodal railway shuttle offers regular rail connections for semi-trailers, swap-bodies and containers from Kiel to destinations in Germany and Europe-wide.
