Intermodal Transport

With intermodal transportation, in the path between supplier and customer, a large part of the road transport is replaced by rail transport.

This results in less road saturation, a smaller environmental impact and safer roads.

Location

Combinant is located in the north of the port of Antwerp-Bruges and is easily accessible from the A12 motorway and from the Scheldelaan.

The total area of Combinant is approximately 1 km by 100 m, or 20 soccer fields.

Train Network

With its central location in the port of Antwerp-Bruges and the cooperation with different train operators Combinant can offer extensive European rail network services.

Joint Venture

Combinant was founded as a joint venture between BASFHupac and Hoyer with the support of Europe and the Flemish Government.

  • BASF Antwerp is the largest chemical production site in Belgium. BASF Antwerp strives for a sustainable “supply chain” by reducing road transport’s share in favor of rail transportation.
  • Hupac is a leader in transalpine transportation with the Benelux countries as main market. Hupac supports the terminal capacity for future growth.
  • Hoyer wants to expand the terminal infrastructure in order to build up a pan-European intermodal network.

Environmental Aspect

By replacing road transport with rail transport Combinant ensures 140,000 fewer trucks will be driving on the roads annually.

140,000 fewer trucks means 30,000 tons CO2 emissions less annually.

140,000 trucks less annually stands for 50 million driving kilometers less or 10 km traffic jams less daily.

Support

Combinant was established with support from EFRO (European Regional Development Fund) and co-financing of the Flemish Government.

The aid is part of the Operational Programme “Regional Competitiveness and Employment” Flanders 2007-2013, priority 3: “Achieving a sustainable strengthening of economic ports and international multimodal accessibility“.

Combinant meets the requirements of this program because it:

  • makes the supply chain more efficient
  • reduces trucks on the road
  • reduces the environmental impact
  • creates jobs
  • strengthenes the European intermodal network
