HAMBURG: January 15, 2019. Intermodal container service Eurogate Intermodal (EI) has begun a twice-weekly rail link between the Port of Hamburg and the Singen terminal, Baden-Württemberg.

egimSingen is a road and rail cargo hub serving southern Germany and the tri-border region, with a focus on the Lake Constance area, Austria’s Voralberg region and eastern Switzerland.

The new direct service, with a total capacity of 88 TEU per run and direction, is aimed at providing customers with an alternative to other high-traffic terminals throughout the Baden-Württemberg region by connecting hinterland and inland traffic with the seaport.

EI is also offering customers first and last mile truck service from terminal to final destination and in line with a growing switch from truck to rail in Europe, the company says the new service, using the latest e-locomotives, will help reduce the amount of CO2 emissions.

"Our goal is to provide a better balance of transport service options in the immediate and neighbouring regions, said EI head of Sales Niels Riedel. “Furthermore, we see our cooperation with the container terminal TSG Singen as an ideal opportunity to further expand our maritime logistics business. Until now, logistics in this region have been more focused on intracontinental traffic, with comparatively limited access to maritime routes. With our new service, we’re taking a step towards changing that."
