We transport trailers on rail - environmentally friendly, reliably, Europe-wide

About us

CargoBeamer is reshaping the future of logistics! In intermodal transport, we are offering smart solutions for transporting both craneable and non-craneable semi-trailers by rail in an environmentally friendly manner. Thanks to CargoBeamer's unique terminals, up to 36 semi-trailers can be loaded horizontally onto a freight train at the same time. There is no need for drivers or tractor units to be taken along, so they can immediately switch to a new transport job, while we take over the long haul by train. Thanks to our steadily growing network of terminals, we transport goods cost-effectively, quickly and sustainably throughout Europe.

We are active in the following business areas:

Operation, marketing and dispatching of CargoBeamer trains

Design, use and service of the patented railcars

Construction, operation and maintenance of CargoBeamer terminals

IT system for booking and billing: CargoBeamer eLogistics

CargoBeamer offers an innovative and powerful solution to reduce congestion on highways and to transport semi-trailers by the environmentally friendly rail. Together with numerous partners and customers, we are growing to become a pan-European company that connects all relevant international logistics hubs by its routes and terminal sites.
