Falkenberg in Southern Brandenburg is linked to a long railroad tradition stretching back to 1848. Situated at a strategic point where the states of Brandenburg, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt meet, Falkenberg historically developed into an important hub for rail traffic in all directions. In 2011, BLG LOGISTICS recognized the potential of the site which had fallen into disuse after the end of the GDR. Today, mixed block trains from Eastern European automobile manufacturing plants destined for 13 different end stations travel to Falkenberg. At the facility, they are formed into single-destination trains that go to, among other places, the BLG sites of Bremerhaven, Rheinhausen, Hamburg and Cuxhaven. Every year, a total of some 300,000 cars pass through the rail hub on their journey to customers. Considerable investments were necessary: 71 points had to be replaced and 25 kilometers of track newly laid.
