Jakob Weets, the company founder, recognized at an early stage the potential of alternative modes of transport.
In import and export, Spedition Weets GmbH connects Kassel and Ingolstadt sites with the German seaports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven by train. Container depots in Germany are used for the provision of empty containers and the temporary storage of full containers. Quay dues can thereby largely be avoided. Regular goods flowing to and from Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary are handled together with long-standing and reliable partners.
DB Cargo takes over the haulage of rail transportation. The Weets Group is responsible for transportation planning and utilization. For many customers, the combination of ship and rail offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to truck direct transportation. In each year around 210,000 TEU are moved. Customers from a wide range of business sectors appreciate the railbound hinterland service. Due to the high frequency of our train service, the ship's departures and arrivals can be timed almost precisely.
In addition to numerous direct trains, the Maschen shunting yard, which is located south of Hamburg, is used by Weets as a hub. This allows not only direct operation of the major seaport terminals such as EUROGATE, CTA, CTT and BURCHARDKA but also other terminals such as REMAIN, SWT, SCHUPPEN 48 and HCS. Thanks to these direct connections, truck transportation in the Port of Hamburg can be reduced, which leads, among other things, to a reduction in emissions and environmental pollution.
