By rail: a sustainable way of transport


Rail transport is not only particularly sustainable, but is also faster than sea- or air freight. Rail is a relatively quick, reliable and cost efficient mode of transport. The lead times were also a pleasant surprise. Your cargo reaches the German border within three hours. Many destinations in Europe can be reached by train within a day. Because of the short travel times rail transport is ideal for transporting your cargo rapidly across long distances and it offers a good solution for transporting large volumes efficiently and quickly.
