Contargo - Logistics Service Provider for Container Logistics

Contargo is a logistics service provider for container logistics. The company specialises in "hinterland transport" (moving containers between seaports and inland), "combined transport" modes (such as using inland barges and trains in combination with trucks for the "last few miles" to the customer), plus all related services (such as depots for empty containers and repairs).

Our network never sleeps and we serve all seaports ranging from Zeebrügge to Hamburg

For this purpose Contargo operates a network of hinterland terminals and scheduled transport lines along the Rhine and its important tributaries and canals, right up to Switzerland.

The western seaports of Amsterdam, Antwerp, Rotterdam and Zeebrügge are the most important interfaces for the import and export of containers, and the hinterland lines of Contargo's multimodal network mainly converge on these ports, but also include the northern ports of Hamburg, Bremen and Bremerhaven. The terminals of Prouvy, Dourges and Béthune in western France are also integrated into the container logistics network.

Most of our terminals are really trimodal

This trimodal network of terminals and transport lines makes us the leading partner for sea carriers, forwarders and shippers along the intermodal logistics chain. Contargo organises transports (one way and round trip), offers a full range of depot facilities and is the right partner for empty repositioning and special services. Many of our terminals integrate inland barge and rail, acting as trimodal hubs. With efficient IT, transparently organised processes and the highest quality standards, we are really there for our customers.

Container transports via barge / rail / truck transport

Our customers benefit from regular, frequently scheduled barge/rail/truck transport. We have the optimal transport mode for every transport task. This makes us flexible with regard to individual timing requirements, costs, different capacity needs and water situations.

As a neutral service provider, we are the right partner for all those who need to succeed in intermodal transport. For customers who use our network, we are the one-stop-shop where their own, familiar contact partners are always available.

Contargo specialises in environmentally friendly container transports in Europe via inland barge, rail and truck.
