Combi Coop II – Combined Freight Transportation Independent of Terminals

Rail instead of road transport – project for a faster and more effective transportation of container goods from the factory to the railway via freight vehicle without transaction at a terminal.  The first test transport of the combined freight transportation independent of a terminal was carried out in southern Burgenland (Austria) with the well-established MOBILER-System of the Rail Cargo Group. Containers can be handled quickly and straightforwardly between freight vehicles and railway-cars almost everywhere by means of special container shifting systems – by one single person, without any assistance and without costly terminal equipment.

The project “Combi Coop II” was nominated as one the 5 top candidates of the 2017 VCÖ Mobility Award in the category “Energy-efficient freight traffic”.

Project partners are nine companies from the southern Burgenland region as well as a forwarding company.
