Switzerland: SBB Cargo International in operation

  • News from UIC members

The new company established by SBB Cargo and Hupac has commenced operations. SBB Cargo, the specialist in intermodal transport and block trains, has been running since the beginning of the year on the European north-south corridor which crosses Switzerland.

The new company’s primary customers are intermodal operators. Its offering is geared to large customers who rely on lean and efficient rail haulage that offers Swiss precision on both intermodal and conventional block train services. Apart from operators, these include rail freight and other railway companies and companies with sufficient volume to fill entire trains, such as steel producers. SBB Cargo International also runs international RAlpin piggyback trains.

SBB Cargo International will be based in Olten. Relocation to the new headquarters is planned for spring 2011.
