The network of connections European Gateway Services (EGS) offers between Bavaria, Germany and the port of Rotterdam is being optimised. The Rotterdam – Nuremberg rail shuttle is now calling at all the deepsea terminals at the Maasvlakte (1 and 2).
EGS provides three weekly rail connections between Rotterdam and Nuremberg in the state of Bavaria and vice versa. In view of an increase in the number of requests, RWG will also be directly served as of February 1st. By doing so, EGS is responding to the wishes of shippers, forwarders and shipping companies; all the deepsea terminals at Maasvlakte – ECT Delta (with a connection to APMT-R), ECT Euromax, APM2 and RWG – are directly served.
Moreover, EGS offers three weekly rail links between Rotterdam and Munich, serving ECT Delta (with a connection to APMT-R), ECT Euromax and RSC Waalhaven. This completes the connection between Rotterdam and Bavaria successively.
By providing direct trucking options and offering the option of pre-delivery and post-delivery of containers in the hinterland, EGS is creating an ideal one-stop-shop. The connections via Rotterdam benefit both, importers and exporters. For example through the first and last port of call function that Rotterdam fulfils for many scheduled deepsea services.
