From Hallsberg we are able to distribute cargo by truck, within a 250-300 km radius we reach Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo. We are very happy and proud that we now can offer this solution to our customers.”, says Fritjof Jonas, Scanlog’s Rail Solutions Director.

The new train shuttle from Antwerp brings a good, cost efficient and environmentally friendly transportation alternative to our region’s businesses. We have today one of Scandinavia’s most advanced logistics solutions and are pleased to offer Scanlog’s customers a wide and complete range of services.”, says Ulf Gustafsson, Managing Director, Hallsbergsterminalen.
