18 Aug Nunner Logistics and Samskip are launching direct rail services between Amsterdam and Duisburg
As of August 20th the new service will connect Samskip’s terminal in Duisburg with TMA Logistics terminal in Amsterdam, initially with two weekly departures in each direction and three roundtrips per week as of September.
Nunner Logistics operates weekly many trains from China via Duisburg with cargo for UK and Scandinavia.
The rail shuttle has been launched in collaboration with TMA Logistics, Amsterdam, Port of Amsterdam and duisport – Duisburger Hafen AG
Erik Groot Wassink, Director Special Products at Nunner Logistics, comments: “Nunner transports a lot of containers from China to the UK on the new silk road, with most trains arriving in Duisburg without a suitable intermodal link onwards to the Dutch ports connecting to the UK. This new service bridges the gap, ensuring a sound intermodal connection for cargoes to the UK.
“We are excited to launch this missing link in our network and offer an even stronger intermodal product,” says David Besseling, Samskip Head of UK Trade. “The combination of the Samskip rail and short sea service networks creates a variety of efficient long-distance intermodal services for a sustainable Door-to-Door solution”
