Ferry transport accounts for over 80 percent of the port’s transhipment volumes. In 2023, almost 230,000 cargo units were transported via the environmentally friendly sea route. A large part of the transport arrives or leaves Kiel by rail. At Schwedenkai this share is over 20 percent.

Semi-trailers, swap-bodies and containers are regularly loaded from Kiel to destinations in Germany and Europe-wide via our intermodal terminals. Please click here to find more information about the special service "terminal-check-in"!
