Our Approach

To create a better future for everyone, we enable smarter trade by offering increasingly sustainable transport solutions. Through our growing range of flexible European rail and barge connections, the carbon footprints of all parties can be further reduced. Also within these two modalities themselves, we are continuously looking for ways to further boost sustainability, just like the individual inland terminals within our European network do for their operations.

Building Sustainable Supply Chains

We firmly believe that in Europe there will be a significant push (political demand) and pull (consumer demand) towards more sustainable transport solutions. This will also act as an accelerator for the further development of sustainable technology, for example through electric or hydrogen propulsion of barges and the electrification of rail. By building sustainable supply chains, we support the economies of the future.
