Cutting emissions and congestion with end-to-end multimodal solutions
Over 11 million new cars are sold in Europe annually. Transporting cars can be costly, especially over longer distances through multiple countries - each with their own rules related to transport, taxation, and customs. Next to logistical expenses you need to consider fuel, tolls, labor, and more…
Moving hundreds of automobiles at once is more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable. Lineas makes this safe, fast, and easy. We take care of customs procedures, optimize routes, schedules and costs, and make sure shipments don’t add to congestion or negatively affect the environment.

Connecting Europe’s chemical hubs: safe, flexible and compliant
Rail offers chemical transports many benefits: predictable and consistent delivery times, economies of scale, lower transportation costs per unit, and enhanced safety. However, cross-border chemical transports must comply with numerous international environmental standards and regulations.
