Switzerland: cargo transport boosts sales

The two business areas of cargo transport and car loading at the Swiss railfreight operator BLS Cargo closed 2016 positively. The transport company increased its sales thanks to additional cross-border traffic and acquiring new customers by nearly 12% and generated profits of CHF 1.5 million. The transport volume, by contrast, dropped by 3.3% to 17,617 trains. With the new partner SNCF Logistics, which holds a 45% stake in BLS Cargo, BLS is strengthening its cross-border cargo transport further. Car loading posted a result of CHF 1.1 million, despite a lower number of vehicles transported. (ben)
