New two-way service from January 2024: by rail via the fixed link or as a continuous ferry-rail service
Kombiverkehr KG is expanding its train services to Sweden. On 3 January 2024, the Lübeck Dänischburg CTL terminal will receive a direct train connection to Hallsberg and Stockholm in Sweden that can be booked by any freight forwarder. The Stockholm Norra (Rosersberg) terminal, located around 30 kilometres north of Stockholm, will be served. The same applies to another new through service within Sweden for trailers and containers from the port of Malmö via Norrköping to Stockholm and back. The combination of ferry from Lübeck-Skandinavienkai and rail from Malmö will be included in the Frankfurt-based company’s intermodal timetable for freight forwarders and logistics companies from 15 January. With this new service, Kombiverkehr is adding Hallsberg, Norköpping and Rosersberg to its terminal services in Sweden, which are now offered in addition to Gothenburg, Malmö and Trelleborg.
The new connections demonstrate once again that we offer our customers the necessary flexibility in planning and carrying out their transport operations throughout Europe. Freight forwarders decide on the routing themselves, and we offer them the important services of end-to-end transport in a one-stop-shop process, including ferry transport. This makes it easy to book the intermodal transport of a trailer from Barcelona to Stockholm over a distance of around 2,500 kilometres, saving more than four tonnes of CO2 emissions.Armin Riedl, Managing Director at Kombiverkehr KG
The service days on the fixed link are Monday, Wednesday and Friday in both directions. The train service between Malmö and Stockholm and the ferry service to and from Lübeck is also offered three times a week in each direction: northbound on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, southbound on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The transport of hazardous goods is possible. The only exceptions are class 1 and 7 hazardous goods. Waste can also be transported on these routes by prior arrangement. There are no restrictions with regard to loading unit profiles. This means that trailers with a P400 profile are also permitted on both routes.
Both new services will be produced with DB Cargo Skandinavia. Continuous bookings of the ferry service between Lübeck and Malmö are made possible through the co-operation with Finnlines.
