Waberer’s launches intermodal service

Waberer’s has launched an intermodal service for consignments between Budapest, Hungary and Neuss, Germany.

A train will depart into each direction daily, leaving the departure points in Hungary and Germany respectively at 10:00 p.m. Day 1 and arriving to their destinations at 6:00 a.m. Day 3. The train sets will complete the 1,000 km journey non-stop, arriving at special terminals at each of the destinations to ensure maximum safety of the consignments.

The intermodal shipments will be transported by a P400 Mega trailer fleet consisting of 400 trailers, dedicated for transporting via railways. The company plans to expand its fleet by additional 300 vehicles to up to 700 P400 Mega trailers.

Chief executive Ferenc Lajkó said: “Being an environment-conscious company committed to innovation, we at Waberer’s seek to design our portfolio in a way that allows us to make available services that offer efficient solutions and create added value for our partners while imposing a low burden on the environment. Our new intermodal solution was launched as part of this ambition, and in the future we would like to expand this service both in terms of capacity and new routes.”
