Field trip to BASF SE headquarters at Ludwigshafen including a visit at the KTL Kombi Terminal Ludwigshafen GmbH, Terminal Frankfurt/Main-Ost at the Deutsche Umschlaggesellschaft Schiene-Straße (DUSS) mbH and the headquarters of TFG Transfracht mbH in Frankfurt/Main

The focus topic of the 2-days field trip in the summer term 2014 was combined transport. The goal was to show the students in the field how combined transports are working, which potentials and advantages they have as well as which challenges actors in the transportation chain are facing. On the first day the 23 students had the opportunity to learn more about the interface of the transport carriers road and rail at the BASF headquarters and the KTL Kombi terminal in Ludwigshafen. On the second day the students visited the terminal Frankfurt/Main-Ost of the Deutsche Umschlagsgesellschaft Schiene-Straße (DUSS) and the headquarters of the TFG Transfracht in Frankfurt. That way the students had the opportunity to get in contact with four different enterprises which are working as combined transport, terminal and rail operators. The students could experience various fields of activity at the different enterprises and gather impulses for their future job orientation.
