ROSTOCK, Germany: September 26, 2019. The Port of Rostock has joined the Logistic Association of Sustainable Intermodality (ALIS).
Begun in 2016, ALIS promotes intermodal European transport via 1,430 member companies operating 106,000 vehicles producing €22.5 billion a year in revenue.
The association has four main goals: the internationalisation of transport and logistics companies, the territorial continuity and uniformity of the European market, the development of less advantaged regions and the reduction of CO2 emissions, explained Grimaldi Group director and ALIS chairman Guido Grimaldi.
With an intermodal terminal of 70,000 square metres and a total of 26 million tons of goods processed in 2018, the Baltic port represents a strategic hub for German and European transport and logistics companies. Ro-Ro traffic remains the engine of the port business growth, with annual growth of four percent via 120 departures a week.
“With the membership of important European ports, as Rostock, we are continuing to pursue ALIS Europe’s goals, offering new opportunities to our member companies and promoting sustainable development and competitive levels’ growth in the global market,” added Grimaldi.
