Rail Cargo Group is now also connecting Frenkendorf, Switzerland, to its intermodal network with a round trip as part of their direct transport routes between Wofurt and Rotterdam.
Wolfurt is very important for Vorarlberg’s economy, which places a strong emphasis on exports. Austria’s most westerly terminal is the hub of the entire region around Lake Constance, for all of Europe. As the starting point for high-frequent TransFER connections, direct transport routes to the northern Ports of Hamburg, Bremerhaven and the Dutch Port of Rotterdam, the Wolfurt Freight Centre (Güterzentrum Wolfurt) is one of the most important transport hubs in all of Europe.
Rail Cargo Group is expanding its multimodal logistics solutions with immediate effect and is connecting their TransFER Wolfurt – Rotterdam Frenkendorf in Switzerland to their intermodal network. Two round trips are running as usual from Wolfurt via Kurfstein to Rotterdam and back. Rail Cargo Group is now running another round trip from Rotterdam to Wolfurt via Frenkendort. Loading and unloading services are available in Frenkendorf. This means it is possible to bring goods from Frenkendorf to Wolfurt, where afterwards it is possible to join the dense freight transport network. This provides opportunities to connect to the Adriatic Ports of Koper and Trieste and to link intercontinental flows of goods directly to the bimodal Terminal Bilk in Budapest, the largest terminal in Hungary. Rail Cargo Group aims to increase their TransFER Wolfurt-Rotterdam to four relations with two stops in Frenkendorf.
Gilbert Bal, Business Manager Rail at Port of Rotterdam, commented: “It is good to have a direct rail connection again from Rotterdam to Swissterminal Frenkendorf, as well as the increase of departures from Wolfurt back to Rotterdam with Rail Cargo Group.”
