(CL), and Andreas Bullwinkel, Managing Director of Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven JadeWeserPort-Marketing GmbH & Co. KG, in the presence of Mr Tong Laiming, Vice President of the Chengtong Group. The logistics centre is to occupy a 20 hectare site in the north of the Freight Village to handle Chinese goods.

The logistics centre has the potential of playing a part in the “Belt and Road Initiative” in the medium term.”
