Perfect Connection - Intermodal Freight Villages in Saxony
Customized commercial properties, a perfectly linked infrastructure, and the availability of 24/7 operations are provided by Saxony‘s three Freight Villages (GVZ) at five locations.
The GVZ Leipzig is integrated into the trimodal network. Saxony’s largest industrial and distribution park directly adjoins Leipzig / Halle Airport, is linked to the federal expressways A9 Berlin-Munich and A14 Dresden-Magdeburg, and has its own rail access including a container depot and a terminal for combined transport.
The GVZ Dresden is characterized by its direct access to the federal expressways A4, A13, A17 as well as to the rail network and the waterways network of the Elbe River. Goods are loaded and unloaded between road and rail at a transshipment station. Unique around the globe: Several times a day, the blue freight trams of the »CarGoTram« line commute between the GVZ, which also houses a logistics center of the Volkswagen AG Group, and the assembly halls of VW’s »Transparent Factory« in Dresden’s city center. Closely coordinated with the city’s mass transit, the plant is supplied »just-in-time« with a limited impact on traffic and in an environmentally friendly manner.
Unlike many other Freight Villages in Germany, the GVZ Südwestsachsen has a decentralized structure. It consists of the core module Glauchau – in the vicinity of Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH’s vehicle production plant – as well as the modules Chemnitz and Zwickau. All locations provide optimal access to rail and road routes.
