Swiss train bookings go on line

[ September 30, 2020   //   ]

Schweizerzug, Swissterminal Group’s rail freight operator, will launch a fully integrated digital booking platform for its services between Rotterdam/Antwerp and Switzerland on 1 October. The online system will offer complete visibility and control over bookings, increasing transparency, eliminating wait times and reducing errors. It gives an overview of available transport capacities and issues a live confirmation of booking, eliminating delays between order sending and confirmation. The online system also provides alerts for missing data and automated notifications about rebooking and delays as well as confirmation of cargo departure and arrival. It also stores customer documents for the internet customs declarations with Swiss Customs.
