Better rail links for Dunkirk
The Novatrans subsidiary Greenmodal Transport and the port of Dunkirk are jointly launching a new multimodal offering. From this month, shuttle trains will haul maritime containers between the port on the North Sea coast of France and all major hubs in southern France (Bordeaux, Bayonne, Toulouse, Perpignan, Miramas/Marseille, Lyon and Avignon) and Italy (Turin, Novara, Milan).
Greenmodal plans to initially operate two departures per week in both directions; these will be stepped up to three in February. The shuttle trains are operated by Dunkerque Green Solution, a newly established company founded by the port of Dunkirk and Greenmodal for this transport offer. (ben)
