RCG opens up the Scandinavian region

With our new TransFER Vienna-Scandinavia, we are not only creating a direct connection to the Scandinavian region, but are also expanding our network in the direction of Northern Europe.

Trelleborg is the southernmost city in Sweden and therefore also the southernmost port. It is a central transhipment point between ship and rail. Especially since the port of Trelleborg is called the gateway between Scandinavia and Central Europe. After all, it forms the decisive gateway for freight traffic flows towards Scandinavia. With TransFER Vienna-Scandinavia, the Rail Cargo Group is now putting a connection running up to four times a week on rail between the central transfer station in Vienna and the northern European metropolises. Non-stop rail services from Vienna to Rostock and the Baltic Sea. Thanks to the in-house production capacity of the main run, we not only ensure our customers a continuous and high-quality international production chain, but also enable a transfer time of only 25 hours between Vienna and Rostock. This gives our customers a decisive competitive advantage in the market. After the goods have been transferred to the ferry, we take the ferry twice a day to Trelleborg. From here, the goods are distributed in single wagonload traffic for the entire Scandinavian region. The ferry connection and the redistribution are handled by our partner Green Cargo.

With this TransFER we are not only expanding our range of services, but also offering the full spectrum of safe, reliable and environmentally friendly transport services for conventional rail freight traffic between Austria and Scandinavia. But that's not all. Because through the central transfer station in Vienna, as the central hub for volume flows from and to South and Southeastern Europe, we provide a seamless connection to our high-frequency national and international network. This enables us to develop markets throughout northern, central, southern and southeastern Europe - in an environmentally friendly manner - for all industrial goods and hazardous goods.
