Intermodal operator Shuttlewise wants to develop container-shuttles by rail. Shuttlewise is looking for possibilities to launch high quality services on important strategic European corridors. The focus is to become a reliable operator with a variety of performing shuttles.
As an operator, Shuttlewise is the director and organizer of a container-shuttle. It aims to link together parties with a common interest in a specific destination in order to set up a viable service.
The importance of Intermodal transport within the transport market is still growing. Not only because of the autonomous growth of world (container)trade, but also due to increasing congestion on the road. At the same time fuel and toll-costs are rising. Moreover, Intermodal transport is an environmental way of transport. A last development stimulating changes in further growth of Intermodal transport is the ongoing liberalisation of the European rail network.
Many companies do not have sufficient specific knowledge of transport by rail or just not enough volume to set up their own company train. Shuttlewise has the expertise and contacts in the rail transport market and wants to link parties for a certain connection, so a structural new container-shuttle can be developed.
Shuttlewise has many contacts in the Intermodal transport market. This enables them to develop new container-shuttles on own initiative or to anticipate on market demand and set up together customized services.
Shuttlewise is always looking for new partners to develop new shuttles or optimize existing connections. Shuttlewise investigates, develops and organizes the container-shuttle. Besides Shuttlewise is responsible for a reliable service, a decent organization and is also taking the financial risk of the remaining capacity on that shuttle. The partner’s contribution is a guaranteed volume or a financial investment in that particular service. In return they are assured of a reliable, high quality service for a very competitive rate and with volume guarantees.
