TransFER Wolfurt–Rotterdam expanded with a stop in Switzerland
ÖBB-subsidiary Rail Cargo Group has added Frenkendorf to its network. The Swiss city is now an additional stop on the connection between Wolfurt (Austria) and Rotterdam.
“We are expanding our multimodal logistics solutions with immediate effect and are connecting our Transfer Wolfurt –Rotterdam Frenkendorf in Switzerland to our intermodal network”, the Austria-based rail operator said. Two round trips are running as usual from Wolfurt via Kufstein to Rotterdam and back. In addition, another round trip from Rotterdam to Wolfurt via Frenkendorf has been launched.
“Loading and unloading services are available in Frenkendorf. This means we can bring goods from Frenkendorf to Wolfurt, where we then join our 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. We aim to increase our Transfer Wolfurt-Rotterdam to four relations with two stops in Frenkendorf.”
Wolfurt is an important hub 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. As the starting point for the 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 an important transport hubs in all of Europe.
