Inland Transportation Services

Seamlessly move your containerised cargo from major vessel terminals to your designated inland locations.

What is Inland Transportation?

For logistics to be efficient, they often require a combination of transport options, known as intermodal transport. Inland transportation describes all logistics transport activities that go over land. This includes:

  • Road Freight
  • Train Freight
  • Inland Water Transport

Covering truck, rail and barge, our Inland Transportation Services are designed to get your goods to their destination in a shorter time – your goods will remain in the same shipping container they were packed in at their origin.

Innovating together to tackle sustainability challenges

Collaboration is key to mutually achieving our ambitious sustainability goals. For Maersk, the ask is clear – to develop 100% green landside transportation solutions by 2040 that will help you to decarbonise your supply chain journey further. To achieve this, we are prioritising efficiency measures and promoting a shift to lower emissions transport modes like rail and barge. We are also looking into clean fuel alternatives and have started piloting biofuels and battery-powered electric trucks in collaboration with our customers.

Maersk has created a tailor-made rail/truck solution for the delivery of our import containers to our distribution centre in Homberg/Efze. Together with their reliable service, this ensures a fixed and stable supply of cargo every week around the year, and made our daily planning much easier.
