Hupac Group records 13% traffic growth due to acquisitions



In 2019, Hupac was able to increase its traffic volume by 13% compared to the previous year, thus exceeding the one million of road shipments for the first time.


In its core business of transalpine transport through Switzerland, the company transported 550,796 road consignments by rail; this represents an increase of 2.8%. Overall, the past year was characterised by rather restrained demand. The first half of the year was still relatively strong in terms of volume, but in the second half, a decline in traffic was noticeable in connection with the economic slowdown in the core markets. This situation, combined with the strong competitive pressure from the road, influences the current year as well.


Non-transalpine traffic grew by 29.4% to reach 455,266 road consignments. This significant increase is primarily due to statistical effects: it reflects the volumes of ERS Railways, which was integrated into the Hupac Group in June 2018, with its transports from the North Sea ports.
