With just a few clicks, you can get a cleaner, safer & more economical supply chain by means of multimodal transport
“We have been able to reduce our transport costs. Moreover, we have been able to achieve an additional CO2 reduction. This, of course, contributes to our goal of accelerating the energy transition.”
Ben Mulder, Supply-Chain-Logistics
Choose open waters, not congested roads
By switching to multimodal transport, you get the benefits of both worlds. Sea freight gives you security, scalability, and economic efficiency. Meanwhile, road and rail freight provides the ability to reach rural areas. In times of border closures and high congestion on the European roads, the majority of ports and terminals operate on a business as usual basis. This means that your cargo will keep moving if you choose Shortsea shipping.
Scale your capacity
Based on demand fluctuations
Does your cargo volume fluctuate from month to month, depending on the season and demand? By using shortsea shipping, you are able to scale the capacity up and down based on your cargo flows. Due to the size of our vessel fleet, extensive multimodal transport network, and multiple sailings per week, you will be able to cope with last-minute orders, changes, or delays by adding or rerouting cargo on an as-needed basis.
