Our Commitments

The figures speak for us, because...

  • the Rhine-Alpine Corridor is the rail freight corridor with the highest volume of traffic in Europe. In transalpine freight traffic between Northern Europe and Italy via Switzerland, rail freight traffic has a market share of 70%. Our combined transport accounts for 50%.
  • we cause five times less CO2 emissions than the equivalent of road transport


  • the transport of passengers and goods generates external costs of around 1 trillion euros per year in the EU. Passenger traffic accounts for 70% and freight traffic for 30% (300 billion euros). With almost 83%, road is the biggest cause of costs for freight transport, rail transport is the weakest with 2% next to river transport (according to a recent study by the EU Commission).


SBB Cargo International is promising, because we are committed to...

  • regulated and harmonised framework conditions on the Rhine-Alpine Corridor,
  • interoperability, so that our trains run anytime and anywhere
  • the reduction of regulatory obstacles, such as national approvals and requirements

as well as

  • international cooperation between network operators and RU.


For this…

  • we work in national and European committees, organisations and associations and
  • participate in various international projects.
