The rolling highway is a form of accompanied combined transport by rail, i.e. a train on which entire trucks or semi-trailers are transported by rail.
Special low-floor railway wagons are used for this. The truck drivers travel comfortably in a coach coupled to the train (with seating or couchettes).
Advantages of Rola:
- Reduced fuel consumption
- Road toll savings
- No time losses due to traffic jams
- Reduction in driven kilometres
- The legally prescribed resting periods for truck drivers can be observed
- No restrictions, e.g. night or weekend bans, apply to pre- and on-carriage
