Moving twice as many consignments to the railways: This is what the Wolfurt Freight Centre in Vorarlberg will enable in the future. Its upgrade is benefiting the domestic economy, securing jobs in the region and helping the climate. Each tonne of freight sent by train causes around 15 times fewer CO2 emissions than sending it by lorry.
Freight traffic in border triangle is benefiting
The Wolfurt Freight Centre is an important logistics hub for Vorarlberg.
