Transport. Trailers will move from rail to ship in Cherbourg in this piggyback project linking the British Isles and Spain. Putting truck trailers on trains, rather than on roads, is the principle of piggybacking. This ambitious project, sponsored by the Ports of Normandy, the shipping company Brittany Ferries and SNCF Réseau, will see 25,000 trailers transported by rail each year [...].
Last week, at the Clip Rail Mega Hub Intermodal in Swarzędz, semi-trailers were reloaded using the Lohr Railway System station. The Lohr Railway System is a technology that allows horizontal loading of standard road semi-trailers on railway wagons, without the need for a crane. For several years it has been used in intermodal transport, mainly between France and Italy. Now it is also available in Poland.
CLIP Group is moving further in developing its Rail Mega Hub Intermodal in Swarzędz near Poznań. Since early March, an innovative system for loading semi-trailers onto wagons without using reach stackers or cranes has been functioning at the facility. It is the first intermodal terminal in Poland with a solution of this type. The new system was applied for the intermodal connection between Poland and Luxembourg.
The first Cristal electric and modular vehicles from the Bas-Rhin industrialist Lohr are due to enter commercial service this summer in Ajaccio. By the end of the year, ten more deliveries are planned to Orange, Avignon and Saverne. The Cristal electric shuttle can carry up to 14 people. In coupled mode, the capacity rises to 56 people. After more than ten years of development, punctuated by local experiments, the Cristal electric and modular shuttle (14 to 56 seats, 100 to 120 km range) designed by Lohr is due to enter commercial service this summer in the centre of Ajaccio. The urban transport network of the Corsican prefecture will therefore take delivery of the first 16 mass-produced vehicles produced in Duppigheim by the European leader in car transporters.
On-Road Testing to Start Next Year with Commercial Services Expected in 2023
JERUSALEM, Israel, and PARIS and STRASBOURG, France, Feb. 25, 2021 - Mobileye, an Intel Company, Transdev Autonomous Transport System (ATS), part of Transdev Group dedicated to autonomous mobility solutions; and Lohr Group, a mobility solutions manufacturer, today announced a strategic collaboration to develop and deploy autonomous shuttles.
The LOHR industrial group named after its founder, Robert Lohr, was created in 1963 just outside Strasbourg. It started by building car transporters, then military vehicles before turning to rail-road transport systems and new mobility solutions as the twenty-first century drew near. By road or rail, in town, (almost) everything runs on LOHR...
