In Rotterdam, the trains will call at three different terminals (Euromax, RWG and ECT).

 

"This is a reliable alternative to truck and barge transport, in line with the Group’s strategy to offer end-to-end environmentally friendly solutions, stated CMA CGM.

 

Peter Wolf, Managing Director, CMA CGM Germany, states: “With this new service, the CMA CGM Group reasserts its ambition to offer our customers flexible intermodal solutions, including land transport. With our partner TFG [Transfracht], we have a rail expert at our side with whom we will reliably connect the largest European port with the German hinterland.”
