Switzerland. SBB Cargo: Separate company for transit services

  • News from UIC members

SBB Cargo has laid the foundations for the future strategic direction of its railfreight business. International block-train services on the transalpine transit routes are to be spun off into a separate company, reducing production costs through leaner structures. In the Swiss wagonload segment, SBB Cargo will provide more standardised services and will tailor its offers more closely to customer needs. Decisions on the implementation of further plans will be taken during the summer (source: SBB – www.cff.ch/press).
