We support private and public actors in questions related to cargo transport, including both rail and road transport.
Shifting freight traffic to rail is a key concern of transport and climate policy. It is our goal to assist you with that shift.
Our tailored freight analyses provide evidence for transport planning process. We analyse the possibilities for wagonload, unit trains or combined transport and assess the feasibility on various rail routes. To this end, we analyse and forecast freight traffic flows, apply our traffic models, and develop measures and recommendations. Our assessments actively incorporate economic issues, as in the case of truck tolls or the elasticity of transport costs.
