Harbour and structure planning

Logistics area with focus on containers

For the company DeltaPort and the post in Emmelsum, agiplan Germany developed a structure plan and a concept as to how the commercial spaces can be developed economically – including a recommendation for the urban planning situation.

Weseler city harbour, Rhein-Lippe harbour and Emmelsum harbour all belong to DeltaPort. The company provides areas and infrastructure for harbour and rail operations, and develops and markets them to commercial and industrial enterprises. The company intends to complement the harbour with further usage possibilities. Wharfages and container cranes are already in place.  

agiplan was assigned to develop a structure plan for the intended western extension of the Emmelsum harbour. The objective: to disclose commercial areas from the city’s point of view with a focus on container logistics.  

The idea of a warehouse district – docklands  

The initial container harbour has capacity for 44,000 containers per year with an extension option of up to 100,000 containers per year. On this basis, agiplan worked out four different usage alternatives.  

  • Division of the area into individual lots and establishing of commercial units
  • Establishing of individual logistics halls and assigned delivery areas
  • Division of the area in separate halls including delivery areas functioning as a sorting hub    
  • Establishing of sorting hubs as a large-scale structure which will be implemented in three construction stages  

The alternatives show that the planned commercial area is suitable for establishing logistics service providers. All alternatives follow the same idea of a "warehouse district – docklands". agiplan recommends the realisation of individual sorting hubs – with an extension option of the harbour northwards.
