TFG Transfracht

We link up Europe's international ports with the hinterland for our customers in maritime combined transport.

We bring to the market operator services within the maritime value chain in collaboration with our wholly owned subsidiary TFG Transfracht.

TFG Transfracht transports containers from the German seaports directly to the final recipient and also from the original consignor to the German seaports on behalf of shipowners and freight forwarders.

Three ports (Bremerhaven, Hamburg and Wilhelmshaven) and three countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) are served by the AlbatrosExpress, TFG Transfracht's train system.

Every year, around 850,000 TEUs are transported with the AlbatrosExpress, resulting in annual savings of 360,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

With over 13,000 connections made each year and 22 terminals, the AlbatrosExpress network is the densest train network in Europe's seaport hinterland transport system.
