Swiss Rail Frequency to Increase in 2019
Starting January 10, Schweizerzug will increase rail services from Frenkendorf and the Port of Antwerp from two to three weekly roundtrips in an effort to alleviate capacity constraints while improving rail capacity for 2019, according to a release from the Swiss company this week.
The expansion of services directly impacts importers, exporters, and shippers as the Swiss rail freight operator continues providing alternative methods of transportation. More recently, the Swiss company has provided daily services from Frenkendorf train terminal and Niederglatt.
Additionally, three weekly services will continue to the Port of Rotterdam as well as the Port of Antwerp through German hub in Neuss.
Roman Mayer, CEO of Schweizerzug AG, commented:
“We are excited about this next step in Schweizerzug’s ongoing expansion to offer our customers more connectivity and services between Switzerland and Antwerp. Shippers in both Switzerland and neighboring regions will profit from our reliable and time-saving rail services.”
“The events of the past few months have underscored yet again just how vital rail is – and will remain – for the transport of goods. Schweizerzug plans to continue further developing its range of transport products to meet market demand with the very best level of service available.”
