New destination in Green Xpress Network: Lyon Xpress
Given the growing success of the Green Xpress Network, Lineas, one of Europe’s largest private freight forwarders, is expanding this network further. This week, the company launched the Lyon Xpress, a new, direct rail product with high frequency and reliability between Lyon and Antwerp. Thanks to a combination of products from the GXN network, cargoes from Lyon can be rapidly sent on their way to the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Slovakia, etc. and vice-versa. The Lyon Xpress benefits also from a connexion with the area Fos/Marseille; this enables an improved access to the industrial sites located around the “Etang de Berre”. This new product will undoubtedly constitute a further step towards the modal shift – the mission of Lineas.
