Our efficient staff provides a full-service transfer of semi-trailers from road to rail:

The platform's main characteristics are:

  • open 24/7
  • 2 platforms of 700 m each 
  • simultaneous loading of 40 semi-trailers on 20 wagons per full train
  • 6​ jockey tractors for loading/unloading trains

The rail motorway is located at the CFL multimodal site in Bettembourg, which also hosts the​ combined terminal. The site is equipped with electronic weighing system and the latest techn​ology in terms of security and surveillance: each utility vehicle is photographed from all sides, with optical number plate recognition, when it enters and leaves the site.
