SBB Cargo modernises its wagonload offer

Large sites will be served several times daily from 11 December; new booking system for customers

SBB Cargo modernises its wagonload offer

After the economic recovery, SBB is modernising its wagonload services for the future of rail cargo transport and creates an attractive offer for shippers. The Swiss rail freight company is adapting to the increasing pace of logistics business and serves major locations up to three times daily, instead of once per day.

In detail this means, from the timetable change on 11 December 2016, three processing phases for cargo transport will be created in the shunting yards. These phases affect the commuter traffic in the morning and evening hours as least as possible. The cargo customers benefit from a higher operating frequency as well as more over night-express services. With the timetable change SBB Cargo introduces also a new booking system to book and confirm specific pickup and delivery times.

SBB Cargo’s program “Wagenladungsverkehr 2017” reaffirms that wagonload transport still is, and will remain a strategic core business in Switzerland in future. The company is thus continuing its course of economy and efficiency.

SBB Cargo continuously develops its wagonload services to increase the competitiveness of wagonload traffic in the long term and reinforce an attractive offer.
