In Rotterdam it will terminate at the Rail Service Center (RSC) in Waalhaven. The first train will depart Rotterdam on 12 March and reach Köln-Eifeltor in just twelve hours. Forwarders and logistics companies can now book the new service, which leaves on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in both directions. Transfers to nearby parts of the port are available from the continental RSC terminal and can be booked as an optional extra. Intermodal transport is possible with P400 loading units. All dangerous goods with the exception of class 7 can be carried. Kombiverkehr KG’s traction partner is KombiRail Europe.

“This new train product shows how we are capitalising on our network advantage. Köln-Eifeltor is one of our biggest hub terminals in Germany, with many options for onward transport both nationally and internationally,” says Andrea de Ambrogi, Head of Sales Benelux, on the USP of the new service. Within Germany there are connections to Munich, Ulm, Kornwestheim and Basel. In international transport, the operator offers connecting services to and from Slovenia, Italy, Spain, Turkey and Greece. The rapid transfer of loading units between trains enables Melzo in northern Italy, for example, to be reached from the Port of Rotterdam in 48 hours. The precise times are set out in the timetable information on the website
