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.
