The total number of units carried in the first half of this year reached 376, 519 and Hupac’s main service was up to 231,793 units. Transalpine traffic via Austria dropped 10.4% to 18,458 units and the service via France dropped 14.1% to 1628 units. Non-transalpine traffic grew by 4% to 124,540 units.

Hupac is also focusing on the development of the mega-trailer market between Italy and the North European ports. The company plans to add ten more services on the Lötschberg route by the end of the year.

The opening of the 4-metre corridor via the Gotthard Route in 2020 will offer even more scope for Hupac to support the modal shift strategy.
