Rail freight

Transport by rail: a sustainable way of transport

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