TFG Transfracht looking back at a very successful 2018

TFG Transfracht can look back at a very successful 2018, when the company's new record of 950,000 TEUs translated into growth of 6.4%.

This result was the outcome of a new strategic approach at TFG that combined flexibility, customer focus and attention to SMEs' needs, while putting into place a host of associated measures.

Following these changes, TFG was able to further increase train capacity utilization in 2018 thanks to more extensive joint undertakings, enhancing its performance in the seaport hinterland sector, and expanding its wide-reaching AlbatrosExpress network by adding company trains. Other important contributions were made by a stronger performance in rail traction and the firm's first significant steps toward supply chain digitalization.


Despite last year's excellent showing, the specialist for containerized seaport hinterland services has set its sights on even higher targets for 2019, which is a special year. "To mark TFG's 50th anniversary, we want to reach another milestone and, together with our customers, break the 1 million TEU threshold," said Dr. Bernd Pahnke, Spokesperson of the Board of Managing Directors at TFG Transfracht.
