Roll on Rail freight plans

A French ferry company is planning to increase cooperation with the rail freight sector. The operator has announced an intermodal transport service for unaccompanied goods-trailers on the rail network along the French-Atlantic coast. This will provide an alternative to long-distance road freight transport.

Unaccompanied trailers have advantages for ferry operators and hauliers. If more freight is carried on the sea, there is less down time for drivers and road tractors, which can improve profitability.

The company is planning a ‘rail motorway’ from the English Channel port of Cherbourg to Bayonne-Mouguerre on the Atlantic coast, which is only a few kilometres from the Spanish border.
