Loaded with Volvo cars, the trains will run twice a week, departing in Europe from the Interface Terminal Gent located in Kluizendok.

The first shipment consisting of 190 XC60s arrived from China on 4 July. The train took 180 XC90s, V90s, and V60s in the opposite direction. The Brussels-headquartered rail operator Lineas is responsible for exports from Ghent.

Volvo has a car factory in the Port of Ghent (part of North Sea Port formed after the merger of the Ghent Port Company and Zeeland Seaports), which in 2018 produced a total of 200,396 cars.
