On the road


The rolling highway (ROLA) optimizes transportation

Travelling throughout Europe with trucks on rails - that is ROLA. ROLA stands for “Rolling Highway". This concept unites road and rail transport.

With this special transport system, entire trucks or trailer trucks can cover certain parts of their route environmentally-friendly by train. ROLA is the ideal solution for individual and customized rail-based integrated transport and logistics services. It relies a dense railway network with optimum integration of pre- and post-transport services.

At the terminals, the trucks are loaded onto special low-loading wagons and then transported by rail. During the ride, the truck drivers can relax in a "recreation wagon" staffed with service personnel. 

The rolling highway concept offers numerous advantages:

  1. Reduction of fuel consumption and transport mileage
  2. Reduction of highway tolls and road taxes.
  3. Circumvention of night driving bans
  4. Observance of the rest times for drivers without transport interruption
  5. Prevention of time losses due to traffic jams
  6. Environmentally friendly.
  7. Positive public image
