New TransFER Melnik–Wilhelmshaven

ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) expands its TransNET with a new intermodal TransFER, which offers a direct connection from the Czech Republic to the northern port of Wilhelmshaven – the transhipment hub for intercontinental transports.

With the new TransFER Melnik–Wilhelmshaven, RCG sets new standards in the Czech freight transport market and offers customers a fixed alternative to the northern ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven. With one round trip per week, the TransFER will run from July 2022 via the route Melnik–Děčín–Maschen–Hude–Wilhelmshaven and vice versa with antenna connections to other terminals in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The route from the Czech Republic to Germany runs every Monday and back every Tuesday. The TransFER is particularly suitable for ISO containers – transports of dangerous goods are also possible.

RCG expands TransNET

RCG is thereby constantly expanding the digital TransNET, in which all network TransFER connections to and from all ports, economic and industrial centres are available at a glance. Under the motto “TransNET, let's play!” and in twelve languages, these routes as well as combinations can be explored and new routes created. After selecting the appropriate route, icons show which services are available at the selected locations.
