Our terminal in detail

Our terminal is open to all businesses, whether or not they are located at iPort. While dealing mainly with intermodal container traffic, it has been designed so that other freight sectors such as automotive, steel, energy and retail, can also take advantage of the facilities and services too.

iPort Rail is also sustainably designed and equipped for future rapid growth, which would double the length of the handling sidings to 800m, provide a second 800m reception siding, and double both our train handling capacity and the size of the storage apron to around 3,000 TEU capacity.
