A total of 618,015 consignments (-4.6% year-on-year) was rail-transported across the company's international network, while the remaining 266,153 were shipped on national/German services (-8.2% yoy).
Tonnage-wise, the company carried more than 20mt last year.
"In 2019 the German economy found itself on the brink of recession. This led to a decline in the number of consignments, particularly on individual national transport routes, due to falling volumes in the chemical and automotive transport segment. The rise in available freight capacity that this caused ensured a fall in road haulage prices, which made it difficult for us to profile our products on the market, even in some parts of the international services," Robert Breuhahn, Managing Director, Kombiverkehr, commented on the results.
