The SBB Cargo and Swiss Post groups are experimenting with a prototype rail service
The goal is to speed up logistics processes and transport more goods by rail
September 20, 2022
Two locomotives were used on the railway line Eem 923 with dual power supply, one in the head and the other in the tail to the train, and in the middle six freight wagons capable of accommodating 12 easily interchangeable containers, so as to compose a train freight in a manner similar to a passenger train. The two partners have specified that the train is also equipped with automatic coupling and with automatic brake testing, which represent the future of rail freight traffic. At the terminus it is therefore no longer necessary to change locomotives and the double feeding allows the compositions to enter directly in the terminals of the parcel centers making no more necessary maneuvering operations and making the procedures more fast and efficient.

The pilot project aimed to measure the potential saving time and calculating the volume additional that can be transferred by rail in order to avoid road transport and, consequently, reduce emissions of CO2. The test also had to analyze the effects that this new procedure would have on the logistics of the Swiss Post group if this new system was introduced. Finally, the project aimed to gather experience with brake test automation and of the coupling, as the automation systems allow to preparing trains more quickly, flexibly and also safer for staff.

Explaining that "the analysis of the results will allow to understand where and how it is possible and sensible to use trains spool for the transport of containers', Johannes Cramer, Head of Logistics Services at Swiss Post, he specified that 'The central element of rail transport is the availability of faster tracks».
