What is the hinterland?

Published on : 08/11/2022

The word “hinterland” is of German origin and means “backcountry”. The hinterland is the land extension of the port activity. In other words, it allows the connection between a port and intermodal transport lines (rail, barge, road) that receive or ship goods through the port. The goal of the intermodal hinterland is to expand the economic activity area by facilitating the provision of supplier and shipper supply chains and thereby improving the flow of goods.
