Intermodal transport

 A balanced transport mix

By 2030, we expect 30% growth of transport in Belgium. Currently, 74% of all cargo transport is done by road. This means that 10% of CO2 emissions come from trucks.

By shifting freight transport to the railways, we contribute to more climate-friendly transport.

In intermodal transport, goods are transferred from another mode of transport (truck, ship) to the train.

DB Cargo Belgium operates for intermodal transport both from Zeebrugge and from Antwerp.

The ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge are of great strategic importance for European freight transport. In the port of Antwerp, for example, the aim is to double the volume of goods transported by rail by 2030.

We connect europe’s two largest ports with their most important hinterland destinations in Germany and Vorarlberg.

Rail Access

Find the right access points to the rail network

Rail Access

You can execute multimodal transport across Europe even without sidings. You will find suitable access points to the rail network here.

As shipping agents without your own sidings, you rely on a dense network of transfer points from the road to the rails.

DB Cargo offers this network – and conceivably facilitates access for you.

The "Multimodal track access" online tool gives an overview of available loading points, local additional logistics services and further equipment characteristics.

Maps visualise the track access points. These can be filtered according to region and location type (free-loading siding, railport and CT terminal).

You are welcome to address any questions or suggestions in connection with loading points to the contact persons listed on the right.
