The advantages of rail transport

Shipping by rail gives you a safe, efficient and sustainable means of transporting your freight.

 

We operate more than 2,700 trains daily throughout Europe, transporting consumer goods, cars, steel and much more. We can transport all types of cargo to destinations in Europe and Asia.

And it is environmentally friendly. Rail transport emits eight times less CO2 than road transport – and the use of just one electric locomotive removes 35 lorries from the roads, which means 12.7 times lower emissions. This is good for the environment and it frees up space on the roads.

We maintain a green focus in every aspect of our work. For example: improving capacity utilisation in our transports, modernising our equipment and facilities, investing in low-emission locomotives, and training our locomotive operators in energy-saving operating techniques.

Safety is paramount in all our operations – both for our employees and for your freight.
