Maersk has extended its sustainability support of German rail customers with a new CapO2 free intermodal transports solution, which is now available on 85% of its German inland rail services. This local and cost neutral solution reduces CO2 emissions to zero and saves around 9.100 tons of CO2 annually compared to conventional trains and approx. 40.000 tons compared to road transport. The container trains, powered by green electricity, will connect the seaport of Bremerhaven with important domestic economic centres such as Mannheim, Stuttgart, Nuremberg and Munich.

Maersk rail transport in Germany is facilitated by ERS/boxXpress.de which operates 100% electric trains in the country. The Hamburg railway company uses 100 percent renewable hydropower.
