At the end of 2022, Hupac temporarily interrupted its rail freight services between the Rail Service Centre (RSC) in Rotterdam and the Contargo terminal in Mannheim. However, in a little over a month, the service will be reinstated thanks to the intervention of Dutch company LTE, which will provide traction on the route from now on.

As a spokesperson from Hupac stated, the company appointed for traction for this service until the end of 2022 was DB Cargo. However, in 2023, Hupac started a new partnership for this service with LTE.

From Mannheim, trains will depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, with closing times at 6 pm. Transit time between the two destinations will be A/B for the departures scheduled during the week, while it’s A/D for trains leaving on Fridays. The service will be suitable for the transportation of dangerous goods.
