Sustainable flexibility: Hegelmann focuses on intermodal transport services

Transport service provider responds to climate change - Multi-link transport chains with truck and rail - 24-hour service in large parts of Europe

The Hegelmann Group is strengthening its range of intermodal transport solutions and is increasingly shifting road transport to rail. This is the Bruchsal-based logistics company's response to the challenges that climate change and the new EU mobility agreement pose to the industry. Hegelmann thus links Germany, France, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Spain and the Benelux countries via numerous routes. Hegelmann Transport Ferry Service (HTFS) reliably books tickets for freight ferries, bridges or tunnels. The transport service provider's customers benefit from fast and cost-optimised offers.
"Although freight transport by road is systemically relevant, it also has many negative consequences. Pollutant emissions, noise emissions as well as traffic jams and accidents put a strain on people and the environment," says Siegfried Hegelmann, managing partner of the Hegelmann Group. According to current forecasts, transport volumes will increase significantly in the coming years. Hegelmann explains: "In order to relieve road traffic and reduce our ecological footprint, we will in future rely more on intermodal solutions".
The Bruchsal logistics service provider offers the efficient combination of truck and rail in large parts of Europe. By cooperating with partners specialised in intermodal transport, Hegelmann can use standard trailers. The advantage: "Not the goods themselves, but the entire load unit is handled. This saves our customers time and money, and also sets an example for sustainable logistics," says Hegelmann. The team at Hegelmann Transport Ferry Service guarantees smooth operations, including payment of tickets and fees, around the clock, seven days a week.
Also against the background of the ban on spending the weekly rest period in the truck cab, as regulated in the new EU mobility agreement, the company wants to shift more transports to rail. "There are not enough places where drivers and their loaded lorries can spend the nights safely", Hegelmann makes clear. That is why it makes sense to look for alternatives to truck transport.
