As part of the project Transport Transition In Practice, funded by the Federal Ministry of the Environment, VTG received the German Transport Transition Prize for its active promotion of modal shift with RoadrailLink (r2L) technology, which was celebrated as an example of the best practice in sustainable transport and mobility.

"As a leading international wagon leasing and rail logistics company with the largest privately-owned fleet in Europe, VTG is actively driving the transport transition," says Sven Wellbrock, Chief Operating Officer Europe, and Chief Safety Officer at VTG AG. "We want to get rail fit for the future. And we want to give our customers solutions that are easy to adapt and slot into their supply chains. So we are delighted to have our work recognized in this way and to win the "German Transport Transition Prize.

The RoadrailLink technology (r2L) was developed together with the logistics company VEGA International and the vehicle manufacturer Kässbohrer. "Some 95 percent of all semitrailers in the EU are still non-craneable, which means they are not suitable for combined transport. The r2L transshipment and transport technology enables freight transport to be shifted simply and with immediate effect from road to rail," explains Jakob Öhrström, Managing Director and Head of the Intermodal Center of Competence at VTG Rail Europe. Thus, r2L allows 97% of all freight trailers to be lifted by the crane. The terminal crane or reach stacker then lifts the ramp with the trailer onto the double pocket car.

This technology contributes to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 200 tons per year. VTG yet again proves its active support for the EU climate goals and the active conversion from road to rail.
