Rotterdam-Nuremberg shuttle now to all deepsea terminals Maasvlakte

The Rotterdam – Nuremberg rail shuttle of European Gateway Services is now calling at all deepsea terminals of the Maasvlakte, in the port of Rotterdam. The latest addition is the terminal of RWG, which is served per 1 February.

Three times a week, EGS provides a rail connection between Rotterdam and Nuremberg in the state of Bavaria and vice versa. RWG was added as the fourth terminal at the Maasvlakte, responding to customer demand. The service is already calling at ECT Delta (with a connection to APMT-R), ECT Euromax and APM2.

Reduced shunting

As all deepsea terminals are now connected, there is a reduced need for shunting. This makes the connection between Rotterdam and Bavaria increasingly more comprehensive.

EGS also offers a thrice-weekly rail link between Rotterdam and Munich, serving ECT Delta (with a connection to APMT-R), ECT Euromax and RSC Waalhaven.
