Efficient Solutions for Rail Freight Transport & Logistics

Growing volumes of goods are being produced and transported worldwide. It’s estimated that international freight volumes will increase nearly fourfold by 2050 – while also increasing related greenhouse gas emissions. To master this challenge, we need to improve the management of capacities and logistics chains, provide more alternative and multimodal connections, and accelerate the shift of freight transport from road to rail in order to reduce environmental impact.

In order to reach this goal, HaCon consults and assists its customers with projects in rail freight transport and combined transport. Our service portfolio includes the requisition and negotiation of subsidies, the completion of financial and administrative formalities and the overall coordination of all parties involved such as railway companies, shipping agents, institutions and associations. Our interdisciplinary consulting team of transport engineers, geographers, lawyers and IT specialists puts great emphasis on an approach that is both integrated and results-oriented. HaCon has many years of extensive project management experience for the European Commission and other project sponsors.
