Trailers travel through the Gotthard with CargoBeamer
CargoBeamer has successfully deployed its innovative wagons on pilot trips along the Lötschberg and Gotthard rail corridors in Switzerland. The freight cars will be able to convey non-craneable, 4 m high trailers through the Gotthard tunnel for the first time ever.
This year CargoBeamer is launching the first scheduled Germany-Italy rail services, thereby making an important contribution to a modal shift in Switzerland’s alpine transit traffic. At present, non-craneable, 4 m high trailers with a wide range of bodies dominate the intra-European road transport routes. (ben)
