Roland Spedition starts new Hamburg-Nuremberg block-train service


Vienna-based Roland Spedition forwarders has started operating its own container block-train service linking three Hamburg container terminals with the Tricon terminal in Nuremberg, according to Shipping Gazette.
Starting last week, the tri-weekly service from the CTA, CTB and EKOM/EUROGATE terminals in Hamburg, will operate on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from Hamburg. The containers are available for collection at the TRICON Terminal in Nuremberg on Tuesdays from 10am, Thursdays from 6am and Fridays from 11am, according to a Port of Hamburg statement.
Nikolaus Hirnschall of Roland Spedition Vienna pointed out that block-trains for carriage from Nuremberg to Austria also transport empty containers to Linz, Enns, Vienna and Graz.
"The round-trip service, Hamburg-Nuremberg-Austria-Hamburg, offers additional fast and environment-friendly transport capacity by rail on the Hamburg-Nuremberg leg, for import containers coming out of the Port of Hamburg en route to the economically-strong Nuremberg region.
There is real interest in the new train showing its acceptance in the market place. With the service from Nuremberg to Austria, we additionally offer our customers cost-effective empty container positioning. Interested shippers can obtain a thorough briefing on the new train products and offerings from the Roland Spedition sales team," said Mr Hirnschall.
Bavaria is the most important partner for container hinterland transport for the Port of Hamburg with about 750,000 TEU being transported to/from Bavaria via Hamburg in 2015. The port also carried a total of some 2.3 million TEU by rail in seaport hinterland transport last year.
With the new Roland Spedition rail service, between Hamburg and Nuremberg there are now a total of 118 block-train offerings in the market place.
SaidvPort of Hamburg Marketing CEO Axel Mattern: "The price advantage and the great number of Hamburg block-train departures, offered to customers by the numerous operators, is not enough on its own. Rail freight service offerings must be developed both market-driven and customer-friendly regarding reliability and flexibility."
