DUDELANGE, Luxembourg GD: July 10, 2019. The Rail Freight Forward (RFF), a coalition of 18 European rail companies, is using container train ‘Noah’s Ark' to promote its goal of eliminating 290 million tons of transport-related CO2 by 2030.

In Luxembourg, CFL multimodal operates from the Bettembourg-Dudelange intermodal terminal in the Eurohub South Logistics Park. With an annual capacity of 600,000 TEUs, the facility is positioned on the Rail Freight Corridor 2 that links the North Sea with the Mediterranean and at the crossroads of the North-South and East-West transport routes.

Speaking at the RFF event, Luxembourg minister of Mobility and Public Works François Bausch underlined his government's determination to put logistics at the heart of the country’s economic diversification policy, to support investment in national logistics centres and to invest in efficient and innovative infrastructures.

CFL multimodal operates 12 companies in six European countries and together with CFL cargo provides combined and conventional rail freight, wagon maintenance and repairs, Customs clearance, as well as forwarding and logistics services.

Noah's Train left Katowice on December 14 and stopped in Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Rome and Munich - for the transport logistic expo in June. The train will continue its journey through Europe until October when the containers will join COP25 between November 11 and 25 in Santiago de Chile.
