SWITZERLAND, Jun 9 (FAM) – The rail freight sector faces increasing challenges from new operating efficiencies within road freight in the years to come, requiring further streamlining to make rail freight competitive, according to the chairman of Swiss intermodal operator Hupac.

Although Hupac, which operates one of Europe’s leading intermodal networks, has continued to see strong growth in 2017 following record volumes of traffic in 2016, Hans-Jörg Bertschi expressed concern over a number of issues that he claims are weighing on the competitiveness of rail freight in relation to road.
