About us

We move sustainably

By conviction, with passion, across borders – since 1969.

Your partner for eco-friendly logistics solutions

As a maritime, port-neutral operator and specialist for port-to-door
logistics, we organize global supply chains in combined transport and connect the system-strength of rail
with the flexibility of trucks. This way, we significantly contribute to our environment – every day.

Whether northern, southern or western seaports – we offer daily international transport solutions by environmentally friendly rail. Via six ports, four countries and 27 terminals, we move around 1 million TEU annually and shift more than 15,000 connections from road to rail: sustainably, by conviction and with passion – since 1969.

We rely on the main run by rail and thus already prevent around 80% of COemissions compared to transport
by truck. In this way, we not only relieve the burden on the roads, but also on the environment – every day. 
With our eco solutions, we also offer genuine climate solutions for 100% CO2-free and climate-neutral rail and road transport.

An extensive range of supplementary transport services round off our service. Whether depot services, customs clearance, dangerous goods or the provision of empty containers.
With us, you get one-stop solutions, from advice on the individual transport concept to implementation.
