Expertos y representantes de instituciones y empresas de logística, transporte e intermodalidad pusieron ayer de manifiesto en Vitoria-Gasteiz la necesidad de sentar las bases de una intermodalidad verdadera a partir de la construcción de infraestructuras ferroviarias eficientes pero siempre bajo la premisa de eliminar antes los cuellos de botella que impiden actualmente un desarrollo más pleno de la intermodalidad. Esa fue una de las ideas que dominaron ayer la séptima edición del Foro de Logística Intermodal del País Vasco, que tuvo además a la plataforma logística alavesa de Arasur como protagonista principal.

Truck-on-train (ro-mo) services in Austria used to be marketed under the Ökombi brand. Now Ökombi GmbH has been merged with Rail Cargo Austria AG (RCA), and the country’s state railway corporation ÖBB could set another milestone in its efforts to simplify the railfreight haulage sector in Europe. The merger has resulted in a single point of contact for customers, as well as leaner structures and an effective, cross-border collaboration in railfreight transport for a wide range of commodities. Ökombi, which used to be Europe’s largest provider of truck-on-train services, conveyed around 300,000 road vehicle units last year.
