Rail freight transport is an environmentally friendly alternative to road transport. Various promotional approaches have been initiated, e.g. to reduce route costs. How can rail freight transport be further developed in a sustainable manner and thus meet the growing volume of traffic?
These questions are also being addressed by AVG, which has continuously expanded its freight transport services in recent years and sees further market potential here.
