Hupac Maritime Logistics launched a new rail shuttle service to the German town of Kornwestheim. This created a direct rail connection between the port of Rotterdam and the major industrial areas around Stuttgart and Baden-Württemberg.
“The port of Rotterdam is an important hub and gateway for Hupac and we are proud of this new connection”, says Peter Weber, director Corporate Development of Hupac Group. “This train provides us the opportunity to target deep sea clients as well. We are convinced that we can offer a fast and reliable service for our customers. Maritime hinterland logistics is a market with a huge potential. Our new business unit Maritime Logistics is launching this new service on a route with high demand. The first weeks are already showing a positive answer from the market.”
