Contargo expands rail transport between the Upper Rhine and Rotterdam
As of 19 September 2016, Contargo is now offering three additional rail departures from Basel/Weil to and from Rotterdam, thus enlarging its present rail offer to the western seaports.
Until now the rail schedule of Contargo AG in Basel comprised three departures per week to Rotterdam and three to Antwerp. "The expansion of our rail production makes us more flexible, and enables us to meet the needs of our customers even more effectively", says Holger Bochow, Managing Director of Contargo AG Basel. "We are now travelling 6x per week by rail to Rotterdam and 3x to Antwerp, in addition to our established barge lines to these seaports." The additional block trains start out from Weil on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday respectively.
In the trimodal terminal in Basel Contargo AG handles dangerous goods and reefers, as well as standard containers. Contargo’s close-meshed barge and rail network is used for the transport of the containers.
The Basel location is a part of Contargo South, an alliance of the Contargo terminals in Basel, Ottmarsheim, Strasbourg and Weil am Rhein. Together, these offer not only trimodal transports in the border triangle, but also a comprehensive range of all required container services.
