As one of the leading companies in the maritime and logistics industry in Europe, DFDS continues to expand its intermodal transports and, in cooperation with Cobantur Boltas, offers additional weekly round trips on the direct rail connection Nuremberg-Trieste, which went into operation last fall.
On April 11, 2021, DFDS launched routes connected to its railway connections, strengthening its sustainable supply chain services. The first solution of the Intermodal competence center launched in partnership with primeRail Gmbh, the new line gets new routes. The new services allow trailers and truck beds loaded in Turkey to their recipients in Europe in an environmentally friendly and fast way in a period marked by the pandemic which has made logistics all the more crucial.
“The increased frequency of this particular line is again proofing the success of the long standing cooperation between Cobantur Boltas and DFDS as well as the growing importance of sustainable logistics solutions.” says Iskender Cobanoglu, member of the Board of Directors at Cobantur Boltas and Managing Director of the German Boltas GmbH.
“DFDS Mediterranean Business Unit continues to enhance its already powerful intermodal infrastructure further,” said Lars Hoffmann, the Head of DFDS Mediterranean Business Unit, about the new routes on the Nuremberg-Trieste connection line. “Our new line is the first solution of our intermodal competence center in partnership with primeRail Gmbh. We are very happy to ramp up our range of services with new routes.”
