Rail Cargo Group offers brand new direct connections

The Rail Cargo Group is embarking full steam ahead into 2017 by further expanding its customer offer. As part of its implementation of customised transport and logistics solutions, Rail Cargo Operator will offer a return service from Rijeka to Ludwigshafen via Munich for their customer DP World. This will be a completely new rail service and the first direct connection between Croatia and Germany.

This is part of the container transport between European economic centres that Rail Cargo Operator, a provider of high-frequency long-haul connections, handles for its customer DP World. The train consist comprises fourteen 90-foot container wagons and four 80-foot container wagons. With this move, Rail Cargo Operator is cementing its position as a major player in the international logistics industry and significantly furthering its aim of increasing the prominence of rail as a mode of transport.
Along the route from Croatia to Germany, the Rail Cargo Group is responsible for the seamless provision of transport not only in Austria, but also in Croatia (Rail Cargo Carrier - Croatia) and Slovenia (Rail Cargo Carrier - Slovenia) thanks to its own carrier companies. This ensures that customers benefit from reduced transport times and increased reliability, and greatly improves safety and quality.
