Six trains a week between Rotterdam and Southern Germany
The Rotterdam-Bayern Express constitutes a fully-fledged alternative for the traditional route from and to Bayern via the North German ports and can accommodate both maritime and continental cargo. In Rotterdam, the train serves all major container terminals at both the Maasvlakte (1 & 2) and in Rotterdam's city area. In Southern Germany, the service calls at respectively the Tricon Container Terminal in Nuremberg and the inland terminal München Riem in Munich.
European Gateway Services also offers pre-transport and post-transport services at both locations. Cargo which departs Rotterdam by train on day 1 is available on the South German terminals on day 2 and already at the doorstep of customers anywhere in Southern Germany and the north-west of Austria on day 3. In the other direction, a similar transit time applies to the connection with the deepsea ship.

Bayern - Rotterdam
See what EGS can do for you
With our daily train and regular barge connection with southern Germany you save 48 hours and gain a lot more.
For many deepsea shipping lines, Rotterdam is the first and last port of call in Europe. This results in highly favourable transit times. While the deepsea ship is en route to the North German ports after having called at Rotterdam, your container is already bound for Southern Germany aboard the Rotterdam-Bayern Express. This can save 48 hours just like that. In the opposite direction, outbound cargo from Southern Germany can be loaded onto the train later and still make the required deepsea connection in Rotterdam.
