Trieste - Villach service launched
ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) is now expanding its network for conventional wagonloads with a new TransFER connection between Villach in Austria and Trieste in Italy. Departure times can be arranged individually for this nonstop service, which RCG is operating with its own traction for the first time.
The connection is particularly suitable for the transport of wood, steel, aluminium and other non-ferrous metals. In addition to an attractive transit time of one day, the new service offers onward international connections between Villach and centres in central, northern and eastern Europe. RCG adds that the TSA Villach Süd site will be expanded into a "dry port" in the coming years. (ben)
