New link between Rotterdam/Duisburg and Istanbul
The Swiss intermodal service provider, in cooperation with Turkrail, has introduced a new north-south intermodal connection with a one-week transit time. The train links the terminals Rotterdam RSC (Netherlands), and Duisburg DIT (Germany) with Halkali in Istanbul (Turkey).
The twice-weekly shuttle, routed via Vienna, departs Rotterdam on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Duisburg on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Halkali on Thursdays and Fridays. Tanks, swap bodies and up to 45 foot containers are accepted for transport. (ben)
