Handling point for European rail traffic
Transporting millions of tonnes of freight by rail and saving the environment in the process: The Vienna South Freight Centre makes this possible. On the southern outskirts of Vienna, the new multifunctional Freight Centre Vienna South, the new central station for freight traffic so to speak, was opened in December 2016. Since then, containers from all over the world have been moved here between road and rail. This will result in around 210,000 loading units per year.
Interface for green freight traffic
The freight centre Vienna South will make rail freight transport even more attractive. The terminal is ideally suited for a change from road to rail: it is located on the S1 expressway, the Southern Route in Austria and on three trans-European rail axes. This makes important economic centres in Europe easily accessible. The project is part of the ÖBB Infrastruktur offensive in the Greater Vienna area.
