The CMA CGM Group has introduced Rhine Valley Rail, a new rail service connecting the Port of Rotterdam with the German hinterland. The train connections are aligned with CMA CGM's deep-sea services.

Operated in cooperation with TFG, the Rhine Valley Rail service will officially start with its first train departure in Dortmund on 18 October. A total of six departures per week between the Port of Rotterdam and the German inland hubs of Dortmund, Duisburg and Ludwigshafen will be offered.

A total of six departures per week between the Port of Rotterdam and the German inland hubs of Dortmund, Duisburg and Ludwigshafen will enhance CMA CGM's intermodal offer and provide customers with a reliable and fast rail connection between Germany and Europe's busiest port.

In Rotterdam, the trains will call at three different terminals (Euromax, RWG and ECT), thus allowing a maximum of flexibility. Moreover, the train schedules are perfectly synchronized with the arrivals and departures of the CMA CGM Group's vessels, providing customers with a steady and seamless connection to the Group's deep-sea services.

Peter Wolf, Managing Director, CMA CGM Germany, states: "With this new service, the CMA CGM Group reasserts its ambition to offer our customers flexible intermodal solutions, including land transport. With our partner TFG, we have a rail expert at our side with whom we will reliably connect the largest European port with the German hinterland."
