Equated to containers, the rail intermodal company from the Swiss Chiasso took care of 1,913,000 TEUs.
Out of the total, 538,104 road consignments went through the Transalpine via Switzerland corridor (-2.3% year-on-year), 434,033 through the Non-transalpine (+0.5% yoy), and the remaining 42,549 took the Transalpine via Austria and France one (+3.7% yoy).
"Given the extraordinary circumstances, we are satisfied with the traffic volume achieved. However, we had set significantly more ambitious goals," Michail Stahlhut, CEO, the Hupac Group, commented on the results.
He also revealed on what the company will focus this year, "We are aiming for the maximum possible train length - operationally and in terms of planning. Expanding the network to a standard train length of 740 m is our top priority - the sooner the better."
Also, for the first time, Hupac's entire Transalpine network will be able to transport the large-volume 4-metre semitrailers. "We expect strong demand in this segment. With our transport offer, we are making a concrete contribution to Switzerland's modal shift policy and to the implementation of the European Green Deal strategy," Stahlhut said.
