At Home on the Silk Road

Transport & Terminal Services (TTS), one of our Swiss sister companies within the TransInvest Group, is a rail freight specialist. After its foundation in 1999, TTS Buchs was able to establish a comprehensive network for rail transport from Sweden to Greece and Spain to the CIS within a very short time. These traffics, a cornerstone of TTS, still work today on the basis of contracts directly with state and private owned RU’s (Railway Undertaker). Apart from this sector, TTS has by now also specialized in Europe-China rail freight.
