Optimized Intermodal connections to complement your regular business

Spot Booking

With a Spot Booking shipment, you get the flexibility to book your shipment whenever it suits your business. It works for customers who can’t guarantee when their shipments will come through.

Only commit to the bookings you need

A sustainable solution because your shipment will be added onto a train that is already in motion, without needing to book a truck.

When to add rail to your transport solutions

Do you have to transport your goods long-distance of more than 500 kilometers but less than 2000? Are you currently scheduled to have your goods booked on a regular cargo route to the same port or terminal? Is your business’ ambition to reduce its carbon footprint? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, rail transport can support your transport needs.
