DB Schenker Rail opens logistics base at Blanc Mesnil to access Paris

2012 03 22

DB SCHENKER Rail has linked the greater Paris area more closely to its European network with the opening of another rail logistics centre on the outskirts of the city in Blanc Mesnil where the company now offers integrated rail logistics solutions for its customers in the steel processing industry.

The collection point for shipments from Germany is Saarbrucken, with services initially running twice a week to the DB Schenker Railport in Survilliers-Fosses, around 30 kilometres north of the centre of Paris. "It is only a short distance from here to the greater Paris area (Ile-de-France), with the final delivery by truck as required by the customer," the company said.

The new service makes use of DB Schenker Rail's European network and, with shipments through France handled by Euro Cargo Rail (ECR), a wholly owned subsidiary of DB Schenker Rail. "It is ideal for the shipment of paper, but also for palliated goods, such as consumer goods and construction materials. Numerous well-known companies from the paper industry and construction materials industry have already shown interest and are now using the new service," the company added.

DB Schenker Rail expects to carry up to 100,000 tonnes of rail freight on this corridor before the end of the year. As a result, the company is already planning to increase the number of trains per week.
