Rail Transport

Global Logistics & Forwarding B.V. is the go-to logistics chain director for your rail freight. As a logistics specialist, we offer you a wide range of transport modalities around the world, including rail freight. In recent years, importing and exporting containers and general cargo by freight train has become an increasingly attractive option, partly because rail freight is faster than sea freight and cheaper than air freight.

Railway transportation is not only particularly sustainable, but is also faster than shipping and cheaper than air operations. But it is not always possible to use rail transport for the complete journey. We therefore handle the pick-up and final delivery runs for you and combine several means of transport to form multi-modal transport chains.

The liberalisation of the European railway markets has opened up a wide variety of prospects. As a result, we operate individual wagon and block train services between all the countries in Western and Eastern Europe – and beyond the European Union too.

Railway transport is often the most sensible solution outside the EU. Shipments can often be handled faster by rail because customs clearance takes place during the journey; as a result, there are no waiting times at border crossings.
