Rail connection links Kombi Terminal Burghausen to Rotterdam port

CHEMICAL logistics company DB Schenker, a partner of European rail freight operator DB Schenker Rail, has launched a new intermodal railway link for international sea containers between its KombiTerminal in Burghausen and the port of Rotterdam.

This will go through the port of Koeln-Niehl CTS Container Terminal, to link the chemical industry in Bavaria to Germany's Rhine-Ruhr region.

Through the creation of this central hub local transport providers are being offered fast transport through the port connection and web-based container planning at the European and global levels, said DB Schenker. 

Highlighting that additional gateway connections by barge and rail already exist between the German city of Cologne and the port in the Netherlands. 

"The connection with the port of Rotterdam will open up a further possibility for our customers to be connected to global import and export quickly, reliably and efficiently," said Schenker BT chief executive Carsten Hinne.

"The new train connection that we are setting up fits in with our concept of international expansion of intermodal rail connections, always providing better connections between regions and our port," said Rotterdam Port logistics chief Wouter van Dijk. 

"The ancillary infrastructure and the additional services of the port of Rotterdam make us an attractive alternative for freight forwarders and shipping companies."
