Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) began work on the new terminal in 2014 to replace an older facility at Wolfurt, which had reached capacity.

A total of 64,000 TEU was handled at Wolfurt in 2017 and the new terminal will increase capacity to 190,000 TEU.

The new facility has four 750m-long tracks and two gantry cranes, with storage space for 1700 containers close to the track and a further 3500 in the adjacent area.

The site also has 500m of sidings for single wagonload traffic as well as stabling sidings for container wagons.
