Building our business around your box

At Swissterminal, we help solve your container needs every step of the way. From container handling and storage offerings to repair and reefer services, our high-quality solutions ensure your boxes ­– and your business – continue to carry the future forward.

Container Handling

Optimising your supply chain

As the Swiss market leader for container terminal services, we are at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for container handling, fusing our well-positioned terminal network and our expertise with pioneering digital solutions.

With locations in Basel, Birsfelden, Frenkendorf, Niederglatt and Liestal, our terminals provide fast, reliable and regular connections to north and south Europe. Our terminals are equipped with Europe’s first inland terminal online slot booking system, helping slash waiting times for your container pick-up or delivery and increasing uptime for your business.

While helping you beat or meet your deadlines is important, it’s still only half of our job. The other half is being proactive about ensuring your cargo is safe and secure. We’re experts in everything from documenting the cold chain of reefers to monitoring and regulations for dangerous goods.

We’re here to be your trusted interface between shippers, shipping lines and carriers.

Container Depot

Giving your business space to grow

Our storage services can save you time and money as well as provide additional flexibility, for example, by allowing you the capacity to take advantage of bulk buying/transport economies.

At all of our terminals, space for both empty and full containers is available at long periods and low costs. We offer storage for standard and reefer containers, and we can also temporarily store dangerous goods containers.

Once we’ve figured out the right storage option for you, our dedicated team of experts will properly inspect and thoroughly maintain all your containers. That way, your job stays streamlined and hassle free.
