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.
