Panda-Sprinter: New logistics concept at the Brake Seaport

BRAKE, 8 December 2020 – Today, the first direct train with 1,000 tonnes of pulp will take off from Brake seaport to Chongqing, China. It provides an additional, faster and above all environmentally-friendly way of connecting Northern Europe with Central China.

DB Cargo and J. MÜLLER experts have developed their own railway product for this new transport method, the so-called ‘Panda Sprinter’. The infrastructure operator Niedersachsen Ports [NPorts, Lower Saxony, Germany] provided the railway tracks in Brake.

Additional trains are already being planned for the period after the test phase with the first pulp train, which is expected to arrive in Chongqing at Christmas. DB Cargo and J. MÜLLER want to jointly expand this logistics concept further in the future for customers in other industries.
