Launch Ruhr Express

Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG), CMA CGM and barge operator HTS have together launched the “Ruhr Express” . After a short pilot period, all parties agreed upon continuing the new concept.

The Ruhr Express, operated by barge operator HTS, offers a point-to-point connection twice a week between deep sea terminal RWG and Duisburg (D3T) and has a semi fixed slot that moves along with the windows of a number of CMA CGM’s deep sea services. This solution guarantees a connection between the deep sea services of CMA CGM and inland shipping, which is beneficial for all parties in the logistics chain. With this point-to-point construction and flexibility in the sailing schedules of the barges, HTS has realized reliable connection between RWG and the German hinterland. Moreover, the efficiency of barge handling on the RWG terminal will increase as a result of greater call sizes.

With this innovative solution, CMA CGM, RWG and HTS fulfill a pioneering role. The collective initiative is an answer to the growing peaks at deep sea terminals as a result of deep sea scale increase and contributes to the further optimization of RWG’s barge product.
