Intermodal transport

Since last year, Hartman Transport Groep has started to offer an intermodal transport solution. This means that we use a combination of road transport and rail transport to get a load from the sender to the recipient. For this we work together with the Leemans Groep and we use the Skåne rail connection from Coevorden to Malmö in Sweden. Some of the advantages of intermodal transport:

  1. A CO2 reduction for a trip to Sweden of up to 80%
  2. 28 tons can be loaded on the train where Germany allows a maximum of 22 tons by road
  3. Reduces traffic congestion
  4. Easy to combine with transport on alternative fuel

Of course, road transport remains the focus of our organization. However, the use of rail transport helps us to respond to a number of current challenges, such as the increasingly tight labour market, the tensions on the fuel market and the increasing road congestion.
