New TransFER between Belgium and Romania

ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) expands its TransNET with the TransFER Genk–Curtici and establishes ideal logistics solutions for intermodal transport units between Belgium and Romania. Connections to Turkey are possible from Curtici.

With this new TransFER, RCG transports containers from 20 to 45 feet, swap bodies and trailers, including dangerous goods, reliably and efficiently between Genk near Maastricht in Belgium and Curtici in western Romania. The TransFER is run in RCG own traction to Curtici from the German-Austrian border near Passau. The sustainable transport by rail runs according to a fixed timetable in three round trips with a lead time of just over 40 hours. In addition, RCG provides further logistics services such as transhipment and storage as well as first and last mile.

New network hub for Romanian and Turkish volumes

In RCG's TransNET, Curtici becomes the new freight transport hub for local volumes from Romania as well as from Turkey towards the Benelux and Ruhr regions. Another advantage is the combination with the TransFER Curtici–Istanbul. This enables shorter transit times from Belgium to Halkali near Istanbul, Turkey's most important international freight terminal.
