weekly rail connections to and from China

As a freight forwarder and ocean freight specialist, Emons Air & Sea and Emons Rail Cargo offer all the services you need for container transport and sea container forwarding. The range of services includes transport by truck or container train to and from the ports, quick transshipment there, and transport as ocean freight. Your goods and cargo are transported by ship to large international ports all around the world.
Emons applies this principle to rail transport as well, providing a full range of rail services. Emons Rail Cargo works with its own container train connections in Dresden, Leipzig, and the northern ports in Hamburg, Bremerhaven, and Rotterdam with its own locomotives and drivers. In Dresden and Schkeuditz near Leipzig, Emons operates its own container terminal, and offers customers a full range of container services through Emons Container Services GmbH.
Multimodal transport of containers to the sea over the road or by rail is an important component of our complex transport and logistics network in Europe with an environmentally friendly approach. Important business centers – especially in Germany, Poland, Czechia – are optimally connected to the maritime ports in Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands.





Ocean freight by container, the alternative

As an established specialized company with ocean freight expertise, we place great value on excellent mutual trust and high customer satisfaction. We consistently support this approach with the use of modern quality management. All of your ocean freight service needs are taken care of when you work with Emons.
We are happy to coordinate your FCL and LCL transport orders to and from all maritime ports, breakbulk shipments, as well as project shipments of all types. This range of services includes global cross trades and complex door-to-door deliveries.
The costs for ocean freight by container are significantly lower when compared with the cost of airfreight. As a result, ocean freight connections represent a price-conscious and environmentally friendly alternative to other modes of transportation. This is especially appealing when your cargo does not need to reach its destination within a very short timeframe, as is often the case with airfreight transportation.
