Sending HGVs by rail - made easy with R2L
Vegatrans and TX Logistik (TXL) are setting new standards in commercial vehicle transport by rail by deploying a "roadrail Link" adapter system (R2L). R2L is able to convert a standard pocket car into an automobile transport wagon.
The system is already in use on a new route between Sommacampagna-Sona, near Verona (Italy), and Rheine in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany).
Two Iveco vans are forwarded from the Italian location to the Rheine freight centre every week. In the opposite direction, Scania and Iveco trucks as well as new semi-trailers from various manufacturers are sent to Italy. (ben)
