Hupac in Italy

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
