GWI launches Antwerpen port shunting service
BELGIUM: Rotterdam Rail Feeding has launched Antwerp Rail Feeding to provide shunting and short-haul services at the Port of Antwerpen, its US-based parent company Genesee & Wyoming Inc announced on April 27. ARF has taken delivery of a Belgian-certified Vossloh G2000 DBNL, and plans to acquire further locomotives.
RRF provides long-distance freight operators and industrial customers with independent 'last mile' and shunting services, principally within the Port of Rotterdam. It also provides haulage for infrastructure and maintenance companies across the Netherlands, and has recently received a licence to operate in Germany, which it says will enhance its ability to route short-haul traffic into Rotterdam and Antwerpen efficiently.
