Intermodal Services Promoted by Truck Transporting Rail Freight Carrier

EUROPE – During the past year we have reported several times on the agreements made between truck transporting rail specialist VIIA, and operations such as P&O Ferries, Ekol Logistics etc. and now the subsidiary brand for the SNCF Geodis 'rail motorways', which carry unaccompanied semi-trailers by train, is promoting two of its intermodal freight routes, including a service between Luxembourg and Perpignan. The company points out the advantages such 'piggy back' journeys can achieve in cutting costs and pollution set against traditionally shipped long road haulage transport.
