Kreuztal and Duisburg join TFG's AlbatrosExpress for greener freight solutions

The expansion offers four weekly departures to major German seaports, solidifying TFG's role in sustainable logistics and addressing the growing demand for efficient freight transport solutions.

TFG Transfracht, a subsidiary of DB Cargo, is to expand its AlbatrosExpress network with two new terminals in Kreuztal and Duisburg. This expansion is a strategic step to meet the growing demand for intermodal transport solutions and to strengthen the connection between North Rhine-Westphalia and German seaports.

The addition of Kreuztal and Duisburg to the AlbatrosExpress network reflects TFG's commitment to providing sustainable logistics solutions. With four weekly departures for both import and export, the new terminals will serve the key maritime locations of Hamburg, Bremerhaven, and Wilhelmshaven. This expansion is in line with TFG's "TFGreen" sustainability strategy and supports Deutsche Bahn's broader "Strong Rail" initiative, which aims to shift more freight to environmentally friendly rail transport.


Frank Erschkat, CEO of TFG Transfracht, highlights the importance of these new terminal connections in offering more transport options and flexibility to customers. The expansion is seen as a crucial step in enhancing TFG’s environmentally friendly alternative to road transport in North Rhine-Westphalia and increasing rail freight volumes.

TFG Transfracht, a leader in containerized seaport hinterland transport, operates a comprehensive AlbatrosExpress network. This network connects major ports such as Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven, Koper, Rotterdam, and Antwerp with thousands of locations in Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, promoting environmentally friendly and efficient transport solutions.
