New METRANS Operation at GUT Gernsheim from 01.09.2020

METRANS Group, in cooperation with GUT Gernsheim, is launching a joint new intermodal product, which will strengthen the hinterland transportation between the northern German ports of Hamburg & Bremerhaven Germany, with Gernsheim.

The city of Gernsheim, situated straight on the Rhine, with excellent road links to the industrial centers in Hessen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Bavaria, and Rhineland-Pfalz offers many possibilities to serve a large number of clients located within this very important economic zone.

Our joint service, using the METRANS know-how, will include regular container shuttle trains, terminal & depot services.

The latest investments of GUT Gernsheim underline how important it is for both partners to follow the main goal to implement a new high-quality service. The enlargement of the existing terminal, and the new development of a rail connection of GUT Gernsheim, will allow METRANS to open completely new railway links
from/to Hamburg and Bremerhaven – starting on 01.09.2020.

The planned cooperation is also going even one step further, where GUT and METRANS, based on a joined force, will also start to operate and manage the terminal and depot for empty containers. The cooperation will rely on the well-established METRANS IT solution for terminals and depots control, which is well known by many partners within Europe and overseas countries as well.

GUT Gernsheim GmbH & Co. KG is already known for its barge transportation solutions, our joint effort will be to make Gernsheim also as an important Rail Terminal, connecting this location with important European ports.
