From 1 March, Rail Cargo Austria is doubling the frequency of its Trieste–Vienna–Linz–Trieste TransFER service to two round trips a week, thus strengthening its direct connection to one of Europe’s most important ports.

With two round trips per week from March, RCA’s maritime TransFER service will run more frequently between the Port of Trieste, Vienna South and Linz. Fixed timetables and attractive transit times facilitate reliable, efficient transport services on the triangular route between the three terminals.

TransNET connections

The Port of Trieste is one of Europe’s most important ports, making it a key hub for European freight transport. This weekly three-way round trip Trieste–Vienna–Linz–Trieste and Trieste–Linz–Vienna–Trieste service for FCL (Full Container Load) and FTL (Full Truck Load) is one of the excellent TransFER services available as part of RCA’s intermodal network. It also provides options for efficient onward distribution from Vienna South to Budapest and represents the link to RCA’s extensive TransNET spanning the Eurasian continent.
