Connect to your customers seamlessly with our rail, road and barge solutions.

We’ve got your cross-continental cargo journey covered

Keeping your cargo moving beyond the oceans

Just moving your cargo from one port to another is not enough. Once it’s unloaded from the vessel, it must keep moving, using landside transportation, until it reaches your destination. During this process, working with many providers creates the hassle of having to coordinate between multiple modes of transportation.

In this video, Chris Moss, European Head of Transport at Maersk talks about how working with Maersk as your one-stop-shop solution for ocean and inland can make your supply chain more flexible.

Intermodal-Carrier Haulage

We seamlessly integrate ocean and inland transportation through our intermodal carrier haulage service so you can move past any supply chain disruptions caused by congested ports, labour shortages or strapped capacity.

A few benefits of our carrier haulage service:

  • Reduced demurrage and detention spend
  • Eliminates container pick-up and drop-off surcharges
  • Seamless transport with less handover points
  • Prioritised equipment availability, with better forecast and planning

Cross Border Transportation is an interregional service that combines rail and truck transport to move your cargo in Europe. It uses modal shift to rail to move more cargo in fewer containers.

Transfer your goods across Europe and between Europe and Asia sustainably with rail services and inland hubs that are strategically located near ports, warehouses and airports. Based on your unique inland needs, leverage our inland solutions that are not only efficient, but also eco-friendly.

Case in point is our recently launched intermodal weekly train service in Bulgaria that connects Burgas to Plovdiv and Sofia. Businesses were previously dependent on road for cargo transportation on this route. Now, the logistics landscape is transformed by not only single container services but also block train services in both directions.
