Transport giant Samskip, responsible for pan-European, environmentally-friendly combined transport services via shortsea, road, rail and inland waterway routes, is launching a new service.
The Russian branch of the Samskip company is launching a new trailer service from European countries to Russia, the Baltic states and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States, mostly nations from the former Soviet Union) and vice-versa. The new round-trip option is meant as an expansion of Samskip Russia’s multimodal transport services.
For one thing, the company’s main sites, in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and Hamburg (Germany) will benefit from direct connections to Sankt Petersburg (Russia), expecting two calls per week.
‘Customers who are demanding faster transit times and transport requirements from any origin including those countries which are geographically closer to Russia (e.g. Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Belarus, Ukraine) and where it’s logically worth using trailers can now be perfectly served by this new complementary product’, according to the Managing Director of Samskip Russia, Andrey Gryazev.
The service offered by Samskip will significantly increase the company’s delivery opportunities. These include box, tilt or mega/jumbo trailers for general, temperature controlled or hazard cargoes bonded and non-bonded transport solutions for full-truck-loads (FTL) or less-than-truck-loads (LTL).
