Contargo introduces new Frankfurt-Rotterdam rail connection

The Swiss-based logistics services provider will offer a new rail connection for containers between Rotterdam, Netherlands and Frankfurt, Germany.

   Contargo will launch a new rail connection for containers between Rotterdam, Netherlands and Frankfurt, Germany, which it will refer to as the Rhine-Main-Rotterdam Shuttle.
   The first whole train will depart Rotterdam Jan. 11, Contargo said.
   The new connection will initially depart Rotterdam every Monday and Thursday and in the opposite direction from Frankfurt at the Contargo Terminal in the Industriepark Höchst every Tuesday and Friday.
   The Industriepark Höchst is a chemical and pharmaceutical site that is home to over 90 companies.
   Initially, the Rhine-Main-Rotterdam Shuttle will directly serve the Port of Rotterdam’s ECT, APMT1, Euromax and RSC terminals. The new connection will also have the potential to access the port’s APM2 and RWG terminals and further deep sea and short sea terminals.
   The frequency of the Rhine-Main-Rotterdam Shuttle may also be increased to three departures a week if required, according to Contargo.
   “The Rhine-Main-Rotterdam Shuttle is above all a real alternative for time-sensitive import and export transports to and from the Rhine-Main Region,” Contargo Industriepark Frankfurt-Höchst GmbH Managing Director Andreas Mager said in a statement.
   Although Contargo already offered this route for several years, the company said it wanted to expand with its own line.
   Headquartered in Switzerland, Contargo integrates European container transport between the seaports and the hinterland through inland waterway, rail and road transport.
