European Gateway Services


Reliable and sustainable hinterland transport

Through European Gateway Services (EGS), ECT offers shipping lines, forwarders, shippers and transport companies a comprehensive range of services for the fast, safe and efficient transportation of containers between the deep-sea terminals in Rotterdam and the European hinterland. After all, what primarily matters to companies is that cargo always efficiently arrives at its final destination at the agreed-upon time and against the right tariff. ECT makes this possible through a continuously expanding, open network of inland terminals which function as extended gates of the deep-sea terminals: fast, reliable, without administrative hassle and especially also sustainable.

Since 2012, European Gateway Services has been connecting Southern Germany and the port of Rotterdam on a daily basis through the Bayern-Express. All information about the connection with the Southern-Germany region and the services EGS has to offer, is compiled on an easily navigable page.
