Logistics BusinessSchweizerzug Launches Direct Rail Service to Rotterdam

Swiss rail freight operator Schweizerzug AG says it has continued its rapid network and service expansion with the start of a new direct rail link to the port of Rotterdam, which began last month. Two weekly, direct roundtrips link Frenkendorf (near Basel) and Niederglatt (near Zurich), respectively.

With the new service, Schweizerzug connects the Swissterminal-operated facilities in Frenkendorf and Niederglatt directly with Maasvlakte II in Europe’s largest container port. The service calls at APM Terminals and Rotterdam World Gateway (RTM). The new connections present a fast and efficient addition to Schweizerzug’s Rotterdam connections via the German hub Neuss and the links to the ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge.
