More train departures on services with Mortara and new connection to Venlo in the Netherlands
With increases in capacity and a new terminal link on services between Italy, Germany and Benelux, Kombiverkehr KG is offering its forwarding and logistics customers a wider spectrum of intermodal services on this leading European transport corridor via Switzerland.
From 6 September the trains between Mortara and Krefeld and between Mortara and Rotterdam CTT will make five round trips a week in total. The existing product on the Mortara – Ghent v.v. route will be boosted from five to six weekly train departures in each direction. There are to be eight weekly round trips on this route from January 2022.
Also in September, the terminal in Venlo, Netherlands, will be added to the Benelux/Italy product range with five departures a week in each direction. "Since the Mortara services were integrated into our international network, the volume of consignments shipped on these routes has trended upwards. Many existing customers as well as new customers have ensured high train capacity utilisation," explained Peter Dannewitz, Head of Sales, on the new arrival to the product range. "With the addition of the Cabooter Terminal in Greenport Venlo, we are also gaining access to one of the strongest business and logistics locations in the Netherlands with an excellent multimodal transport infrastructure that is in very high demand from customers." The services to and from Mortara, which are run in cooperation with BLS Cargo, SBB Cargo and Captrain Italia, have been in the Frankfurt operator's portfolio from February 2021.
With the first train departure for Mortara on 9 September 2021, Frankfurt operator Kombiverkehr will be adding the Cabooter Railterminal in Greenport in Venlo to its product range. Direct trains will ensure a quick and particularly environmentally sustainable connection between the two multimodal locations in the Netherlands and Italy five times a week.
