Door-to-door Combined Transport is the future of freight transport in Europe. Through the intelligent interconnection of rail, road and waterways, intermodal freight transport stands for a sustainable greenhouse gas reduction of up to 90% and a reduction of energy demand of up to 70%. At the same time, intermodal transport leads to better working conditions for truck drivers and sustainable relief of congested roads and their residents. Zero Carbon Combined Transport will deliver the decarbonisation of inland freight transport on a well-to-wheel basis by 2050.
Touax supports the CT4EU campaign since Combined Transport makes a significant contribution for reducing CO2 and leads to less congestion on roads.
Now is the time to shift more goods from road to rail and to invest in rail infrastructures in Europe!
Louis Pastré, Touax
We combine the two most efficient means of transport and save 1,75 Tons CO2 per unit. Be it single wagon traffic, intermodal trains, train conveyance or high and heavy goods like construction vehicles or snow ploughs: We deploy the world´s largest rail ferries on the route Rostock-Trelleborg for maximum flexibility. Connecting Europe for a sustainable future.
