A combi train will be pulled by ’through going’ locomotives, guaranteeing a transit time of only 15 hours between Sweden & Gernany.

The intermodal container network of Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal will be expanded as from the 2, May 2013, with a shuttle service between Duisburg in Germany and Älmhult in Sweden.

The operators say that the new combi train Älmhult will strengthen the presence of Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal in the Swedish market. The wholly-owned subsidiary of Samskip is already operating daily shuttle trains to and from Helsingborg, Göteborg, Nässjö and Katrineholm. The combi trains are able to carry Huckepack (mega) trailers, as well as 45 ft (curtain sided) containers. An in-house trucking operation takes care of all pre- and on-carriage of loaded units.

Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal has been offering rail services between Scandinavia and the continent since 2003, introducing the first ‘through going’ locomotive operation on the routes in 2008. Linehaul services for the new train to and from Älmhult are being provided by Hector Rail.
In combination with its existing rail shuttles from and to Göteborg, Helsingborg, Nässjö and Katrineholm, Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal operates a total of 42 rail shuttles per week, making it one of the leading intermodal service providers to and from Sweden.

“With this expansion we will be able to serve our existing and new customers even better in future” says Johan Logtenberg, MD of Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal. “
