From now on, cars from Volvo Cars in Ghent will get to their final destinations faster and more sustainably. At a new train terminal near Mercatordok in North Sea Port, cars are loaded onto and off ships and onto and off trains.

This collaboration between the Volvo Cars plant, DFDS and the Belgian rail freight operator Lineas efficiently brings together the different modes of transport (ship, train, truck). Thanks to the extensive use of rail transport, the throughput time from factory to final destination is now up to 30% faster.
