As from January 23 intermodal operator Shuttlewise will start a new trainservice between RSC Rotterdam and Antwerpen Mainhub. This service will start with 4 departures per week.
Because of the connection with the Portshuttle in Rotterdam and the LORO Shuttle in Antwerp also the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp will be connected.
Main motivation for this service are the direct ongoing connections to Spain using the network of Belgium operator IFB. Result is the first connection from Rotterdam to Spain where we reach 4 destinations: Barcelona, Tarragona, Irun and Madrid. From Madrid there are possibilities to reach Sevilla, Murcia, San Roque and Valencia.
Shuttlewise has extended its current network with daily trains to Italy and France with this service to Belgium and Spain. In 2016 the Dutch operator has run 1.600 train and transported over 55.000 containers and swapbodies.
