Hamburg-based container transport provider EUROGATE Intermodal (EGIM) has added new rail links to its portofolio. From 1 July 2019, it will offer three weekly direct connections each between the port of Rotterdam and the inland depots of Kornwestheim, Munich and Nuremberg.
EGIM says it is responding to increasing cargo flows via Western ports and the associated increase in demand for maritime transport intermodal services. As a multi-user port, Rotterdam is particularly well suited for these routes.
The services connect the sites in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg directly to the seaport terminals ECT Delta and Euromax on Maasvlakte I in the port of Rotterdam. The APMT and RWG terminals on Maasvlakte II are reached via the Rotterdam PortShuttle. Connections to the port of Antwerp are available on request.
The direct links support the EU’s goal to increase the share of container transports by rail or barge from 18% to 30% by the year 2030.
