ÖBB Rail Cargo Group creates new TransFER connection between Wels, Vienna and Budapest


With the TransFER Wels-Vienna-Budapest, the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) is launching a new rail connection, thereby creating further network effects for intermodal solutions on the most important corridors and between three of the most important intermodal nodes in Europe. This will link not only Austria with Hungary, but also the entire northern European region with south-eastern Europe and the Asian part of Turkey.

Creating and connecting networks
With TransFER Wels-Vienna-Budapest, the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group relies on a cooperation with the Frankfurt Kombiverkehr KG and thus enables direct access to both networks from a single source. The direct connection between the Wels CCT-Wien Süd CCT-Budapest BILK terminals three times a week means that passengers can switch directly from the respective terminal to the Kombiverkehr and ÖBB RCG networks. The results are attractive, continuous transit times and an optimal timing of the schedules in Wels CCT-Vienna South CCT-Budapest BILK to the respective main runs. Customers benefit from an optimal connection to the international intermodal networks of both logistics partners.

Connection of the entire Northern, Central and South-Eastern European region
With the commissioning of the new TransFER connection between three of the most important intermodal hubs in Europe and the simultaneous linking of the extensive network of Kombiverkehr and ÖBB RCG, customers from the transport and logistics sector will be offered another attractive opportunity to shift traffic from road to environmentally friendly rail. ÖBB RCG thus not only creates network effects between Italy, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey, but above all attractive logistics solutions between the entire Northern, Central and South-Eastern European region.
