GreenBridge launches new round-trip service

GreenBridge Multimodal has launched a new round-trip train service between Turkey and Europe. The train is the fourth round-trip, regular service connecting the Duisburg rail hub and the port of Trieste.

“The frequency increase vindicates the principles behind GreenBridge, which combines the benefits of Samskip’s European multimodal network and Intercombi’s in-depth industry expertise in the Turkish market,” says Marcel Delmee, GreenBridge manager multimodal services, Turkey Trade. “GreenBridge offers major advantages over conventional road transport that include faster transit, elimination of border delays and traffic jams/road taxation, better security and lower fuel costs.

“Introducing the fourth round-trip train meets expectations set out at the launch of GreenBridge in 2014 and will enhance service for existing and new customers. Our ambition is to add a fifth train in the future.”
