Cargobeamer aims to build over 30 terminals for combined transport
German logistics specialist Cargobeamer is planning further investments in combined transport. It intends to create a network of more than 30 dedicated terminals in the coming decade. The facilities, which will be located on the European key transport corridors, will be linked by a well-developed system of intermodal services.
Cargobeamer has attracted 33.5 million euros during its latest financing round at a post-money valuation of 245 million euros. The money was provided by mostly private investors and family offices from Switzerland and the US. Most of the amount will be allocated to constructing 30 new terminals for combined transport in the next 10 years. Currently, Cargobeamer operates one facility of this type, which was opened in Calais, France, in July 2021. The construction of two other terminals, in Domodossola (Italy) and Kaldenkirchen (Germany), are scheduled for starting this year.
Other areas for investing
Besides creating a network of dedicated terminals, Cargobeamer will also invest in arranging new intermodal connections between them. More than 50 routes will be launched to link Cargobeamer’s facilities into a complex system. The German company will also double the number of the dedicated pocket wagons for moving semi-trailers up to 600 units. Another area for investing is the development of digital solutions, including Cargobeamer eLogistics, a cloud-based software application for managing the entire transport chain.
