Multimodal lands VIIA

VIIA is the umbrella brand for SNCF Geodis' rail motorways activities. On a rail motorway, complete trucks are transported by train, unlike conventional combined transport, which involves the carriage of mobile trailers or containers. This system can transport all types of semi-trailers that meet European standards and does not require carriers to invest in specific equipment

VIIA offers European transporters an alternative and innovative solution to the road.

This “other way” provides economic and ecological advantages to improve our clients’ efficiency.

VIIA is marketing the Luxembourg-Perpignan rail motorway, named LORRY RAIL, the longest in Europe; and the Alpine Rail Motorway (AFA).

New lines will open very soon

SNCF Geodis, the division of SNCF responsible for freight transportation and logistics, is an international multimodal operator.

SNCF Geodis set itself two priorities:

  • Boost the competitive performance of goods transport by rail and
  • Pursue the shift from road to rail, in particular by creating a European network of rail motorways by 2020, by transfering 500,000 lorry runs to rail and preventing 450,000 extra tonnes of CO2 emissions per year
