METRANS expands the LINZ service – from Linz to Hamburg / Bremerhaven

Following our successful export connection with the port of Koper, import connection with northern ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven and following many inquiries, as of 13.12.2019 we are once again expanding our Linz service with an export train connection from terminal Linz to the northern ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven.    

With our goal to successfully cover all the varying customer requests, the newly established export connection will be operated in two different variations: 

– 1x per week a direct connection from terminal Linz to the port of Hamburg

– 2x per week a connection from terminal Linz to the port of Hamburg and Bremerhaven via METRANS HUB system 

With this setup, we aim to be able to offer a viable solution to both the urgent shipments with the direct train, as well as a solution for the less urgent shipments with a possibility of 10 days of free storage on METRANS terminals. Our HUB system, therefore, offers a possibility to deliver the containers to the ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven on a specifically requested day, avoiding unnecessary additional cost.
