From the Nordic countries to southern Italy: DB Intermodal provides cycled intermodal services on the north-south route


Sophisticated network enables customers to benefit from reliable and environmentally friendly transportation services in Europe

Munich, DB Intermodal now offers its customers a consistent and cycled intermodal transportation concept from the Nordic countries via Germany to southern Italy. Together with its partners, the market leader for intermodal transportation in Europe links the business centers in the Nordic countries through daily services with all the important business regions in Central and Southern Europe.

“For our customers, this means that they can rely on regular, non-stop services on the north-south route, and that they can use intermodal services with a high frequency to transport their products from the Nordic countries via Germany to southern Italy”, said DB Intermodal CEO Hans-Georg Werner. “Our customers increasingly expect solutions that combine cost-effectiveness with environmental protection. Our intermodal transportation services in Europe, with the environmentally friendly rail transportation as the backbone, provide the right answer. DB Intermodal helps to avoid 1.3 million tons of carbon emissions year after year, and at the same time, it considerably improves our customers’ carbon footprint.” Overall, DB Intermodal provides 500 trains per week on this route and thus transports roughly 130,000 tons of freight by rail, which is an environmentally friendly mode of transportation.

“Owing to this strong north-south route, transportation services across the Baltic Sea have developed into a particularly strong pillar for our company. From Lübeck and Rostock, we provide ferry services to Trelleborg as well as other Nordic ports to link German business regions with Sweden and Finland. And services to Italy are also available”, said Robert Breuhahn, Managing Director of Kombiverkehr.

“As one of the leading European operators, we have developed the link between Sweden and northern Italy via the Big Belt in cooperation with DB Intermodal. This provides a direct link between the Swedish network and Italy via our Danish gateway Taulov. The synergies resulting from the cooperation with DB Intermodal have provided a major impetus for us to market daily services”, said Hupac Director Bernhard Kunz.

DB Intermodal implements this intermodal transportation network together with strong partners and produces the services in close cooperation with the traction service providers DB Schenker Rail, Green Cargo, BLS Cargo, RTC and Lokomotion.
