Get back on track in Europe with rail transport

After experiencing a decrease in their market share over the last few decades, the logistics industry is shifting back to rail. While this brings many new possibilities, it doesn’t come without difficulties.

Our e-book, Back on track: The pros and pros of rail in European logistics, brings together Christian Carstensson Olesen, Global Product Owner of Cross Border Transportation at Maersk and Chris Moss, Head of Transported by Maersk Europe, to discuss the current state of the European rail transportation sector.

It also explores the biggest challenges faced by brands transporting cargo across Europe, why rail is vital to overcoming them and how Maersk is at the forefront of driving this progress.

Lowering your inland supply chain’s GHG emissions

At a time when sustainability is one of the top business priorities, road freight continues to constitute the highest proportion of overall transport emissions in Europe. That’s why, it’s more crucial than ever before to find alternative modes of inland transport like rail and barge. While rail emits 90% less GHG emissions per ton km than road, barge transport is rapidly growing across the world.
