Continue successful relocation in Alpine transit

With the opening of the Ceneri Base Tunnel in December 2020, another piece of the puzzle has been completed for an efficient north-south link through Switzerland. However, the expansion of the international freight corridor is delayed by at least a decade. The productivity increases in international combined transport are therefore only half as high as originally planned. 

The Federal Council recognises the delayed implementation in principle and is presenting a "Package of measures to strengthen modal shift" in the modal shift report of 13.11.2019. From the point of view of the Swiss freight transport industry, however, the proposed measures are not sufficient. BLS Cargo CEO Dirk Stahl together with Hans-Jörg Bertschi (Chairman of the Board of Hupac Ltd) and Sven Flore (CEO SBB Cargo International) shows today that additional measures for the Unaccompanied Combined Transport are necessary to compensate for temporary corridor deficits.
