The plan aims to increase revenues from freight operations from €168m this year to €283m in 2020 through a range of initiatives, including the development of a new intermodal terminal at Bettembourg-Dudelange in Luxembourg and growth of the railfreight business, including the expansion of CFL Cargo's international operations. CFL Cargo is already active in France, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden.

In addition to investment by the Luxembourg government in the Bettembourg terminal, CFL will provide two gantry cranes, a fleet of new Modalohr intermodal wagons, a new wagon maintenance depot, and a new 30,000m2 centralised warehouse.

CFL expects total freight traffic to increase from around 1.4 billion tonne-km this year to 2.8 billion tonne-km in 2020.
