KV-Terminal Burghausen: Public terminal for combined transport – important location factor for enhancing the logistics and infrastructure of the growing industrial site

The orientation of the local chemical industry towards future-proof ‘high-tech standards’ entails major logistic requirements as transport volumes rise. The volume of goods traffic in Burghausen alone amounted to around 4.3 million tonnes in 2012 (of which 2.03 million tonnes transported by rail) and in the entire ChemDelta Bavaria in 2014 totalled around 7.6 million tonnes (of which 3.5 million tonnes transported by rail) with the trend continuing to rise. An efficient, environmentally friendly transport infrastructure is therefore of crucial importance for the long-term development of the industrial location of Burghausen.

In order to improve the standard of logistics, since 2005 Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Burghausen mbH has therefore been pursuing the construction of a public goods traffic terminal for combined transport. This project is being realised by a regional consortium of investors consisting of Burghausen Town Council, Altötting district council, VR – meine Raiffeisenbank eG Altötting-Mühldorf, Wacker Chemie AG and Borealis Polymere GmbH that was founded in 2011 as RegioInvest Inn-Salzach GmbH.

Milestones of the Burghausen Terminal:

  • 2012: start of construction
  • 2014: entry into service
  • 2017: entry into service of 2nd expansion stage

Potential and prospects of the container terminal:

  • Further growth prospects for industry
  • Opening of further logistics potential concerning the enhancement of railways and roads (bundling of benefits of both transport systems and best possible development of environmental potential)
  • Enhancement of regional logistics as a strategic investment: Burghausen Town Council investing around €4.3 million in measures affecting this (roads and development)
  • Creation of a new economic sector with main operations, services and sustainable logistics
