New MSC service between Baden-Württemberg and Trieste

Mediterranean Shipping Company has introduced a dedicated intermodal block train service between the Port of Trieste and Giengen-an-der-Brenz, located in the south western German state of Baden-Württemberg, approximately half-way between Stuttgart and Munich

Giengen-an-der-Brenz is close to the city of Ulm. The rail terminal and its associated container depot are operated by a shipper, BSH Hausgeräte GmbH, one of Europe’s leading European home appliance manufacturers - mainly Bosch and Siemens brands.


Hence it is promoted as an ideal solution for this shipper’s and other local companies’ supply chains from Asia, avoiding congestion in other regional intermodal terminals, highway congestion and driver shortage problems.


"This stand-alone solution offers A-B connection between the metropolitan area of Ulm and the Adriatic, as the fastest gateway between Asia and the Mediterranean," said MSC.


It is planned to offer two weekly round trips, harmonizing with MSC’s ocean services over the Italian port. "The new connection completes our international portfolio and further strengthens our carrier haulage products in Southern Germany," said MSC Germany.
