Luxembourg, 13 June 2007 – Today transport Minister Lucien Lux visited the CFL cargo stand at the "transport logistic 2007" fair, one of the biggest tradeshows for freight transportation in the world.
It is the first time that CFL cargo participates in this renowned event, which is taking place in Munich from 12 to 15 June. The fair takes place every other year and attracts more than 40,000 visitors from more than 100 different countries welcomed by approximately 1,300 exhibitors from more than 50 countries.
"We are very satisfied with the level of interest that the numerous business visitors are showing for the attractive offer of CFL cargo," said Fernand Rippinger, CEO of CFL cargo.
"I am happy that the joint venture is developing so well and that CFL cargo has already started earning the rewards of its success," explained Transport Minister Lucien Lux, whose visit demonstrated the support offered by the Ministry of Transport for the recently created CFL cargo.
CFL cargo came into existence through the merger of the freight section of the Luxembourg National Railroad Company CFL and the internal transportation department of the Luxembourg mills of the world's number one steel company ArcelorMittal. This enables CFL cargo to benefit from the parent companies' extensive experience in the domains of railway operations, client service and safety.
The strategic location at the heart of Europe enables CFL cargo to operate the main European North-South and East-West routes in cooperation with its subsidiaries CFL cargo Deutschland and CFL cargo Danmark. In addition, CFL cargo offers feeder traffic service in the SaarLorLux region and in Northern Germany / Denmark.
