WHAT IS THE ROLLING HIGHWAY?


Complete trucks are loaded onto trains at special terminals; the drivers travel in an accompanying passenger coach.

The Rolling Highway is an economical way of crossing Switzerland despite the country's night and Sunday driving ban – around the clock, 365 days a year. Optimise your logistics chain and travel fuss-free between Freiburg im Breisgau and Novara.

All the freight company has to think about is the planning and dispatching. Unlike unaccompanied combined transport, no logistical changes or investments are necessary. The Rolling Highway can accept virtually any truck approved for European roads.

Covid-19 update on the situation in Italy

Since 11 November 2020 Italy is subdivided in three zones with different grades of lockdown rules. However, industrial production as well as freight transport is permitted on the whole national territory. Staff just needs a self-declaration that indicates the reason for traveling or staying outdoor - all details here.

Similar restrictions are in place in many European countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain.

Intermodal transport has already proven resilience and ability to perform during the COVID-19 first wave.

Today, we are happy to inform you that:
•  our trains run regularly;
•  our terminals work regularly and observe strict hygienic anti-contagion measures;
•  our office staff works safely at home or in a protected office environment;
•  In addition to the protection measures already in place for your drivers, we have recently introduced a thermo scanner in our terminals in Novara and Freiburg: Drivers with a temperature of more than 37.5° will not be allowed on our trains. In the coming days, a personal bottle of hand disinfectant will also be distributed to each driver at check-in.

For any further information, please contact our Dispo at +41 58 822 88 22 or E-Mail
