Maritime Logistics

Customer driven rail solutions

ERS Railways is the Hupac Group branch for maritime inland transportation based in Germany. Founded in 1994, ERS has 30 years of expertise in intermodal services for maritime containers.


Intermodal network

Our high-performance network for maritime container transport connects the seaports of Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Rotterdam with the most important economic centres in Germany. We move your containers – from the seaport by rail and onwards by road to the final destination. Fast, efficiently and eco-friendly.


With 30 years of experience in the field of intermodal services, we serve the terminals in Nuremberg, Munich, Augsburg, Regensburg, Ulm, Kornwestheim, Frankfurt and Mannheim as well as the border areas to the Czech Republic, Austria, France and Switzerland via combined transport.


Continental network of Hupac

In addition, ERS Railways offers the possibility of using the continental network of Hupac Intermodal for maritime volumes, allowing our customers to benefit from our full-service container handling on these routes as well. Furthermore, Hupac provides a pan-European network of container terminals that we can use.
