Distrirail - making new connections

Connecting all
containerterminals in the
port of Rotterdam with
the European hinterland


Distri Rail connects all rail terminals in the port of Rotterdam with the European hinterland. We daily operate 7 trains of each 100 TEU / 2200 TBR to/from Duisburg – Mannheim – Ludwigshafen – Wörth. Distri Rail is one of Rotterdam’s largest privately owned Rail companies. The head office is situated in Rhoon, right in the heart of the Port of Rotterdam, the centre of European container shipping.

Being one of Rotterdam’s leading suppliers in logistics, we operate with our extensive in-house team, backed by a European network of dedicated agencies and representatives. Information is available to our customers and suppliers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days per year. Not only through online accessibility via our system and Electronic-Data-Interchange (EDI) but also through our staff and management.

Furthermore it also explains why the client portfolio of this department consists out of Exporters, Importers, Forwarders, Trucking companies, Inland terminals and Shipping lines.

Supply chain

Lean supply chain management should be considered by businesses who want to streamline their processes by eliminating waste and non-value added activities. Companies have a number of areas in their supply chain where waste can be identified as time, costs or inventory.
We at Distri Rail understand the importance of delivering on our promises. Through constant monitoring of internal and external work-flows we provide visibility and management control of the complete end to end supply chain.
