Hire our intermodal wagons dedicated to Combined Transport
In response to the challenges of sustainable development, the share of multimodal transport has increased substantially in recent years and will continue to grow.
Ermewa, a leading European freight wagon leasing company, is supporting this development by investing in the latest generation of intermodal wagons to guarantee safety and performance. Ermewa’s investment plan is largely focused on this segment, enabling it to strengthen its fleet of 60′, 80′ and 90′ container wagons, contributing to the decarbonation of its customers’ supply chain.
When you choose Ermewa for your combined transport operations and projects, you can rely on our logistical support, the strength and skills of our European network, and you benefit from international transport solutions delivered with excellence by our rail experts.
Combined Transport is a multimodal method of transporting goods using a single intermodal transport unit, which offers considerable flexibility to reach a variety of destinations, since it combines several modes of transport: road transport for the first and last kilometers, and rail for long distances, as well as sea and inland waterway transport. By using standardised containers, multimodal transport enables a smoother and more versatile transition between the different modes of transport, without any major load breaks, thus facilitating the logistical operations of loading and unloading goods at platforms, ports, terminals, etc.
Since the products transported in intermodal wagons vary accordingly to logistical requirements and specifications of the container used, the fleet offered for hire by Ermewa is adapted to all types of products. We offer a wide range of container wagons to meet your rail transport needs.
Combined transport by wagon provides a high loading capacity, helping to transport large quantities in a single shipment over long distance. This logistical solution contributes to economies of scale, reducing unit transport costs per ton carried.
Our fleet of wagons offers protection from the elements when transporting goods that can be sensitive to weather conditions.
Rail transport offers reliability and safety for the products transported. The solid structure of the wagons reduces vibrations and movements, helping to prevent potential damage during transport at speeds of up to 120 km/h. This speed also allows for a greater number of rotations.
With its low CO2 emissions, rail transport is a mode of transport that contributes to more environmentally sustainable practices.
