Freight forwarding specialists Kombiverkehr KG will launch a new logistics offering from the Port of Rotterdam to meet growing demand for containerised goods in Europe.
In a statement, the Port said the “wider spectrum of intermodal services” will become effective from 6 September and will connect customers in Italy, Germany and the Benelux nations via Switzerland.
Additionally, the terminal in Venlo, Netherlands, will be added to the Benelux/Italy product range with five departures a week in each direction.
Peter Dannewitz, Head of Sales, Kombiverkehr, said, “Since the Mortara services were integrated into our international network, the volume of consignments shipped on these routes has trended upwards.
“Many existing customers as well as new customers have ensured high train capacity utilisation,” explained on the new arrival to the product range.
“With the addition of the Cabooter Terminal in Greenport Venlo, we are also gaining access to one of the strongest business and logistics locations in the Netherlands with an excellent multimodal transport infrastructure that is in very high demand from customers.”
The services to and from Mortara, which are run in cooperation with BLS Cargo, SBB Cargo and Captrain Italia, have been in the Frankfurt operator’s portfolio from February 2021.
With the first train departure for Mortara on 9 September 2021, Frankfurt operator Kombiverkehr will be adding the Cabooter Railterminal in Greenport in Venlo to its product range.
Direct trains will ensure a quick and particularly environmentally sustainable connection between the two multimodal locations in the Netherlands and Italy five times a week.
