Article: TFG Transfracht connects the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam with daily connections to theEuropean Un-ion
On 13 December 2020, TFG Transfracht will integrate the Westhafen Antwerp as the sixth port in its network and is also expanding its portfolio with new routes to and from Rotterdam. In the future, the most important container terminals for the maritime sector in Rotterdam and Antwerp will be connected by daily connections to the main economic centres in the hinterland.
For this purpose, the marshalling yard in Kijfhoek, the Netherlands , will act as a central hub for the western ports.
Atthe same time, the specialist in seaport hinterland traffic is further expanding its AlbatrosExpress network and connecting its 24th terminal with Wolfurt in Austria. With Wolfurt, the Vorarlberg region will be connected to the regions of southern Germany, western Austria, eastern Switzerland and the liechtenstein national market with a weekly regular timetable and faster transit times.
The expansion of the daily offer for maritime hinterland transport with the TFG to other important European seaports is a central component of a DB Cargo project to strengthen the European railnetwork. The core of DB Cargo's project is a unique combination of single-wagon, cargo and combined transport.
"As part of our strategy orientation towards internationalization, we promise new customers: flexible and high-frequency connections with the western ports – on a daily basis. We are looking forward to shifting even more transport to environmentally friendly rail," explains Dr. Bernd Pahnke, CEO of TFG Transfracht.
With this international positioning and a new range of services from the western, north and south ports, the specialist in containerized seaport hinterland transport presents international transport solutions for the requirements of its customers on a daily basis.
