A cleaner, safer & more economical supply chain
Choose open waters not congested roads
By switching to multimodal shortsea based transport you get the benefits of both worlds. Sea freight gives you security, scalability and economic efficiency while road and rail freight provide ability to reach rural areas. In the times of border closures and high congestion on the roads, ports and terminals operate on a business as usual basis while staying safe which means that your cargo will keep moving if you choose Shortsea transportation.
Scale your capacity
Based on demand fluctuations
Does your cargo volume fluctuate from month to month depending on the season and demand? With using multimodal Shortsea-based transportation you are able to scale the capacity up and down based on your cargo flows. Due to the size of the fleet, extensive 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.

Most extensive multimodal network in Europe
Geographically, our market stretches from Ireland in the west to Russia in the east, and from south of the Alps to the Norwegian fjords. Since seaborne transport can replace or complement other transport modes, especially trucking, the market potential for our door-to-door offering is substantial.
