The LOHR Railway system is a road-railway system (piggyback) which is technologically safe and economical for the transportation of standard road semi-trailers on the European rail network.
The Lohr railway wagon has been lowered and articulated and as a result allows for fast and safe transfer of semitrailers. This technology has made it possible to transfer more than half a million trucks from road to rail in the past 10 years, namely on the two rail motorways currently in service: the “Alpine” between Chambéry and Turin and the”Lorry-Rail” between Luxembourg and Perpignan. This has saved more than 300, 000 tons of CO².
Lohr Railway System provides a solution that is truly competitive, environment-friendly, immediately operational, complementary to road transport, and able to absorb the high levels of transit traffic currently saturating the European road and motorway networks. It combines the flexibility of the road with the advantages of rail for medium and long distances
