Having already established its FastTrack service at other key locations, VTG is now offering the same service at the port of Gothenburg.
A block train comprising twenty 80-foot container cars and with a loading capacity of 80 TEU – but excluding traction – is stationed at the port of Gothenburg and can be booked online around the clock.
About half of all container transports to and from Gothenburg are already handled by rail. Thanks to VTG FastTrack, there is now also an excellent solution to accommodate ad-hoc transports and/or order peaks. Since these are usually handled primarily by road, VTG FastTrack constitutes a climate-friendly alternative.
“We are very pleased that this project has enabled us to add another attractive location for our premium FastTrack service, and also to extend our long-standing cooperation with the port of Gothenburg,” said Sven Wellbrock, chief operating officer Europe and chief safety officer of VTG AG. “FastTrack can play a valuable part in the port’s connectivity, while also making rail more competitive with other modes of transport.”
