ANTWERP : The railway connections between the major Belgian Port with Germany, Austria and Italy are expected to increase with the German freight railway company, TFG Transfracht, as a new operator for Antwerp.
TFG Transfracht offers daily connections between Ludwigshafen, Nuremberg, Munich, Burghausen, Wolfurt, Milano, Verona and the most important maritime container terminals in Antwerp, while in September, Regensburg was also added to the company’s network.
Thanks to the connection to Wolfurt (AT), TFG Transfracht has also connected the region of Vorarlberg with the regions South-Germany, West-Austria, East-Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
In Antwerp, the DP World Antwerp Gateway Terminal Q1700, the MPET-quay 1742 and the PSA terminals Q913 have also been connected. Aside from the deep-sea terminals, other conventional terminals can also be connected on request, according to the port’s announcement.
“Possible disruptions in the supply chain can be absorbed effectively and delays with sea-going ships or high/low water on the Rhine have little impact,” said the Port of Antwerp
