GreenBridge Multimodal adds 4th train connecting Turkey and Europe

Date: 17/03/2017

GreenBridge, the multimodal brand redefining freight services between Turkey and Europe, has introduced a fourth regular train connecting the Duisburg rail hub and the port of Trieste.

GreenBridge is a joint initiative of European multimodal solutions provider Samskip Multimodal B.V. and Intercombi (ICL) Transport, a subsidiary of the leading logistics company Turkey Netlog Logistics Group. The combined transport service reaches destinations across Europe via the Samskip Rail Terminal, Duisburg, with Trieste connected to Turkey via 6x weekly sailings offered by UN RO-RO.

Adding a fourth regular train to the Duisburg-Trieste land-bridge reflects new customer commitments to the multimodal solution, says Marcel Delmee, GreenBridge Manager Multimodal Services, Turkey Trade.

“The frequency increase vindicates the principles behind GreenBridge, which combines the benefits of Samskip’s European multimodal network and Intercombi’s in-depth industry expertise in the Turkish market,” he says. “GreenBridge offers major advantages over conventional road transport that include faster transit, elimination of border delays and traffic jams/road taxation, better security and lower fuel costs.

“Introducing the fourth roundtrip train meets expectations set out at the launch of GreenBridge in 2014 and will enhance service for existing and new customers. Our ambition is to add a fifth train in the future.”

Each GreenBridge train connecting Duisburg and Trieste has capacity for 34 unit loads, with the partners offering a range of unitised equipment, including containers of up to 45ft length and 13.6m length mega trailers.

The fourth train has been added following a revision of the traction agreement between the service partners and Rail Cargo Austria. It will depart southbound from Duisburg on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, with the additional northbound journeys departing from Trieste on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

​Greenbridge is a joint initiative created by Samskip Multimodal B.V. and Intercombi (ICL) Transport and Logistics, a subsidiary of Turkey Netlog Logistics Group. Samskip and Intercombi Transport are limited partners in Greenbridge.​​
