Trial train run between Marseille and Calais
Cargo Beamer has written history by successfully running the first ever train with trailers in France between Marseille and Calais. The train serves as the first successful railway line for the unaccompanied transport of craneable and non-craneable semitrailers on rail, one of Cargo Beamer’s specialities.
Travelling from the Port of Marseille Fos to the Cargo Beamer terminal in Calais, the service carried 28 units on sustainable rail instead of the road.
Like all Cargo Beamer lanes, the train consisted of both Cargo Beamer-railcars and twin pocket wagons. Traction was provided by DB Cargo France. In Marseille, the train was handled inside the Marseille Manutention ro-ro terminal. (ben)
