Another intermodal route laid by CargoBeamer utilising its key European terminals is already up and running. This time the company will link the Cabooter Railterminal Kaldenikirchen directly with the port of Rostock. This is the company’s first exclusively domestic German service and will run with six weekly roundtrips.

The Kaldenkirchen-Rostock service has already commenced with the first roundtrips. According to CargoBeamer, it is suitable for transporting cranable and non-cranable semi-trailers, P400s, reefer containers, silos and standard containers.

What is crucial for the service is Rostock’s position and the possibilities it offers in terms of further connections. As a result, cargoBeamer wants to utilise Rostock as a gateway for semi-trailers towards Scandinavia and Lithuania by ferry services. On top of that, it can become the entry point for cargo originating from these destinations, which CargoBeamer can then dispatch all the way to Perpignan in Southern France through its network.

More to come

CargoBeamer has undergone quite a few changes in the past months. For instance, its management team was refreshed while it also saw a substantial capital raise, all to hand the company in a new generation with fresh ideas. Changes seem to fit the company, which is now looking to expand its network even more. For instance, a few weeks ago, it launched a new, also domestic, service for cranable and non-cranable trailers between its terminal in Calais and the port of Marseille in France.

The same idea seems to apply to the Kaldenkirchen-Rostock service, which is domestic but tailored in a way that will bring flows from different markets apart from Germany. Probably this is not the end of new services since the company says there’s more to come. “The addition of Kaldenkirchen – Rostock is the first step in our plans to expand CargoBeamer’s network with numerous new lines by the end of 2023,” highlighted Boris Timm, the company’s COO.
