New rail service to the port of Lauterbourg


Lauterbourg Rhine Terminal - LRT, the force behind the tri-modal terminal in Lauterbourg (Alsace), has today inaugurated the first train to the port of Antwerp

As part of the Ports of Strasbourg’s long-term multi-modal strategy, and aware of the economic and environmental stakes in play for just-in-time logistics and industrial groups, BOLLORE LOGISTICS (via their Nancy agency) and the ACPMC Strasbourg, a rail specialist, have turbocharged the multi-modal capacities at Lauterbourg.

LRT brought in BOLLORE LOGISTICS Nancy and HAEGER & SCHMIDT to make this new rail service a reality. HAEGER & SCHMIDT, a logistics expert, partner and shareholder in the terminal, are highly active multi-modal operators across the upper Rhine and are on hand to support cross-border companies as they transition to this carbon-reduced modal relay solution.

The creation of this rail link is the result of intense work by the entire logistics chain to adapt and offer relevant new solutions to industrial players.  The roles of the WASCOSA, who rent specific rail wagons, the FRET-SNCF, the freight arm of the national rail company, and the MSC, a supplier of maritime containers, have been critical in the launch of this new offer to Antwerp and its major international port.

This first train, leaving Lauterbourg with 48 TEU containers will hopefully see heavy and repeated service in 2024, driven by an influx of activity by our export and import partners.

The multi-modal space at the Ports of Strasbourg, sitting on the Rhine from Marckolsheim to Lauterbourg, is the beating heart of the region’s transport industry. It is at the crossroads of Europe’s major trade corridors, and combines service, performance, and economic incentives.

Through their multi-modal strategy, the Ports of Strasbourg aims to accelerate their rail traffic by 2030. To achieve this, they intend to mobilise a massive investment programme for the development of the new rail hub, part of which will go to Lauterbourg.
