Running between the Voestalpine steel company’s industrial site at Linz, Austria, and Lower and Upper Bavaria, the Bayern-Shuttle constitutes an example of how rail freight could change the future of European transportation.

It transports more than half a million tonnes of cargo by rail while saving almost 8,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, compared to road haulage.
