The train will be staged at the Duisburg Rail Terminal (DRT) in Duisburg. TX Logistik will take over the traction at Krefeld-Uerdingen station. From there, the route goes via Padborg, the Öresund Bridge, and Malmö to Katrineholm. The city is located in the province of Södermanlands län, about 150 kilometers southwest of Stockholm. The destination is the terminal GDL in Katrineholm. Within a radius of 150 kilometers, about one-third of the Swedish population can be reached.
The train is around 700 meters long and can carry up to 42 load units. Swap bodies, semi-trailers and containers are transported. They are mainly loaded with industrial and consumer goods.
“We already cooperate with Samskip in the maritime sector and transport containers for the partner in seaport-hinterland traffic on the Rotterdam – Munich route,” explains Bernd Weisweiler, Director Business Development at TX.
Samskip Multimodal will be responsible for managing the available slot capacity. With this shuttle operated by TX Logistik the company is further expanding its transport services on the route between Duisburg and Katrineholm.
