    23.04.2020 - Hamburg. EUROGATE Intermodal introduces new rail service between Bremerhaven and Frankfurt/Main.


    EUROGATE Intermodal (EGIM) extends its service network with a direct connection between the container terminals Bremerhaven-Nordhafen and the inland terminal DUSS (Deutsche Umschlaggesellschaft Schiene–Straße) in Frankfurt/Main.

     

    The Hamburg-based provider of combined transport by rail and road will start its new service on 3 May 2020, directly connecting the EUROGATE terminals CT 2, MSC Gate and the North Sea Terminal (NTB) with the DUSS terminal in Frankfurt-East twice a week. Import departures leave Bremerhaven-Nordhafen on Sundays and Wednesdays. Northbound export trains leave Frankfurt-East on Mondays and Thursdays.

     

    The service has a capacity of 96 TEU per departure and direction. The company boxXpress.de GmbH operates as traction provider for this service as well as other EGIM connections.

     

    The new product complements EGIM's existing range of services between Bremerhaven and Kornwestheim, Mannheim, Munich, Nuremberg and Ulm. EGIM also connects the seaports of Hamburg, Wilhelmshaven and Rotterdam with other inland terminals in southern Germany and Hungary.

     

    As the fourth largest container port in north-western Europe, Bremerhaven is not only an essential gateway, but also an efficient hub for handling large container ships. With potential capacities of more than 20,000 TEU per ship, the vessels calling at Bremerhaven increase and concentrate demand for intermodal offers for maritime transport inland.

     

    Niels Riedel, Sales Manager EGIM, explains: “With our new service between Bremerhaven and Frankfurt-East, we offer our customers additional direct and efficient connections to the hinterland. At EGIM, our goal is to continuously optimise our service portfolio to meet market demand, and we are pleased to further support Bremerhaven’s role as an important hub for north-western Europe.”
