Bayernhafen GmbH & Co. KG: the site architect

The bayernhafen Gruppe comprises the six inland ports of Aschaffenburg, Bam­­berg, Nuremberg, Roth, Regensburg and Passau, all linked by the Main, Main-Danube Canal and Danube. It is a successful com­­pany that considers itself a partner on an equal footing with the businesses settled on its sites, the freight forwarding industry and the local authorities. What sets the bayernhafen sites apart is the combination of central locations at important economic and geographic nodes and efficient links between different modes of transport: water, rail and road.

The bayernhafen Gruppe sees its role as site architect. Its core business is the establishment of functioning economic areas and everything that this entails: business real estate, reliable conditions, attracting industrial, commercial and logistics companies to its sites and leveraging synergies between settled businesses. As an active facilitator in the development of logistics solutions and networks, bayernhafen invests site-wide in infrastructure such as quayside, rail tracks, cranes and terminals for combined transport. This allows bayernhafen to strengthen the position of the ports as logistics hubs and major platforms for the global exchange of goods. The bayernhafen Gruppe sites are among the most important drivers of the ­Bavarian economy.
