Rail transport

Seacon Logistics is the go-to logistics chain director for your rail freight. As a logistics specialist, we offer you a wide range of transport modalities around the world, including rail freight. In recent years, importing and exporting containers and general cargo by freight train has become an increasingly attractive option, partly because rail freight is faster than sea freight and cheaper than air freight

Rail freight and storage of your goods

With such a wide range of international rail connections, we can always find the most appropriate route for your shipments. Duisburg is located in an important logistics hotspot, with multiple rail connections to Eastern Europe and Asia. This is one of the reasons we have a presence with an office and warehouse in the heart of this port (CFS Duisburg). It gives us direct access to the largest rail network, and we can quickly distribute your goods door-to-door.

Tailor-made rail freight solutions

We always go the extra mile for our customers. Personal and proactive involvement is the basis of any successful partnership, and our central goal is to relieve you of every concern. In addition to complete coordination and organisation, we also take care of all the other logistics services related to warehousing and transport.

The right import and export documentation

We always look at the entire supply chain. To serve you even better, our own customs department arranges any necessary import and export documentation and transport certificates. Our compliance desk checks whether your goods meet all the guidelines and legislation of their place of destination. This means you can avoid any unpleasant surprises, and we make the difference for you.

China rail - Goederenvervoer per spoor van en naar azië

Rail freight between China and Europe has increased enormously in recent years, partly due to China's investment in the New Silk Road. Duisburg is an important hotspot in this rail network, so Seacon operates from an office and warehouse in the Port of Duisburg. Our warehouse also functions as a customs depot, which saves you costs and means you only have to pay import duties when your product is transported.
