CLdN CARGO focuses more and more on intermodal activities. With intermodal transportation there is no longer the need to handle the freight itself when switching transport modalities. We are combining multiple modalities of transportation for door-to-door movements, for example, we are combining road transportation with rail transportation. The specially designed trailer is fully loaded and put in its entirety on a rail wagon to transport throughout Europe. This makes for a very versatile, cost effective and damage free way of handling and carrying your cargo. In combination with road transport has rail transport a very broad scope.
We have seen a large increase in our volumes moving by rail. Daily we are transporting many loads in our 45ft box units and our Huckepack trailers through Europe by train.
The constant change in the needs of our customers generates a lot of opportunities to further optimize the concepts of our intermodal door-to-door services and innovative thinking.
Intermodal services are provided when the route, price, frequency and services can be effective and competitive compared to other transport modes.
Intermodal trains are operated under the shuttle principle. This means that they operate between two rail terminals on a fixed frequency schedule with known arrival and departure times. This makes it a reliable and predictable service in the supply chain with pre- and on carriage by road providing a full door-to-door service.
We offer 24/7 Trace & Trace capabilities for all of our units operating on intermodal services throughout Europe, either by the rail operator at train level or through our GPS equipped trailers.
