Launch of local Operations Center in Mainz
Brussels, 24 September 2018 – In view of the importance of the German market to Lineas’ Green Xpress Network, the company is expanding its operations in Germany with the opening of an Operations Center in Mainz.
Lineas already has an office with commercial and operational teams in Mainz, a strategic location in the Rotterdam – Antwerp – Rhine/Ruhr region triangle, where 40% of the European chemical industry is located. The new Operations Center in Mainz will monitor the 200 or so Lineas trains that travel in and through Germany every week and will meet the demand from the German and European market for an even more direct local point of contact.

New destination in Green Xpress Network: Lyon Xpress
Given the growing success of the Green Xpress Network, Lineas, one of Europe’s largest private freight forwarders, is expanding this network further. This week, the company launched the Lyon Xpress, a new, direct rail product with high frequency and reliability between Lyon and Antwerp. Thanks to a combination of products from the GXN network, cargoes from Lyon can be rapidly sent on their way to the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Slovakia, etc. and vice-versa. The Lyon Xpress benefits also from a connexion with the area Fos/Marseille; this enables an improved access to the industrial sites located around the “Etang de Berre”. This new product will undoubtedly constitute a further step towards the modal shift – the mission of Lineas.
