Freight Rail Transport
METRANS Rail Ltd is a licensed carrier for the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany through its subsidiary METRANS Rail Deutschland GmbH. A large volume of shipments to the other countries is realized in cooperation with our partners in Poland, Hungary, Austria, the Netherlands and the other European countries. We usually transport international shipments without exchange of locomotive. This saves time to our customers and their money.
We are specialists for a just-in-time shipment. We are able to transport trains quickly and precisely follow the timetable. This confirms the success of our projects - regular container trains from Prague to Rotterdam, from Prague to Duisburg, from Prague to Salzburg, from Hamburg to Leipzig, from Hamburg to Nürnberg and München, which we run from three times to seven times a week. For example our regular container train from Prague to Rotterdam is operated seven times a week nowadays. The train passes 1,016 km long route in 18 hours, what is a period of time comparable to road transport. However we offer our customers lower prices for the train transport. The train transports continental and short sea shipment. It is necessary to offer customers standards comparable to road transport for an acquisition and a retention of this shipment on a railway. The line from Prague to Rotterdam is successfully operated since September 2010.
Operative Train Transport (Ad-Hoc)
Since 2009 we have implemented transports of grain from Hungary to various destinations in Germany with a total volume of about 50,000 tons. We transport also other items from the agrarian sector, the chemical sector and from the sector of combined transport.
