TransFER Linz–Wels–Duisburg becomes TransFER Linz–Duisburg–Rotterdam

ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) is optimising its TransFER with a connection to Rotterdam, which enables a direct round trip connection between Austria, Germany and the Netherlands.

Rotterdam plays a crucial role in rail freight transport – the port is a major logistics hub in Europe and serves as an intermodal transport hub for the transhipment of goods between rail, ship and truck. Rotterdam is not only an important hub for freight transport within Europe, but also beyond. The TransFER Linz–Duisburg–Rotterdam now operates four round trips per week, providing an optimal connection for maritime flows of goods to the economic regions of Western and Central Europe. In addition, the TransFER allows transfers within Rotterdam to all maritime and continental terminals in the Maasvlakte and Waalhaven industrial and port areas, as well as to Antwerp and Zeebrugge.

Procedure and options

The TransFER starts in Linz and runs via Duisburg to Rotterdam. Everything follows a fixed timetable for reliable logistics planning. All types of stackable containers between 20 and 45 feet can be transported. The use of swap bodies is also possible in the direction of Rotterdam. RCG is actively working on an additional transport option for cranable trailers. Dangerous goods (RID) can also be transported along the entire route.
