Metrans improves connection between south-west German industrial region and Hamburg

Thanks to its efficient rail terminal, Kornwestheim is an important transport hub in the centre of the industrial regions around Stuttgart, Mannheim and Frankfurt am Main. The European rail logistics company Metrans is linking these export-oriented regions more closely with Hamburg, Germany's largest seaport, with a new service.


The subsidiary of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) has been offering a daily rail connection for container transport between Hamburg and Kornwestheim since 8 January. Goods can be transported in both directions, and a direct connection to the seaports of Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven is also possible with Metrans.

Rail transport is proven to be much more climate-friendly than road transport. Metrans even enables certified CO2-free transport with the product HHLA Pure. More details at www.hhla-pure.de.
