100% Pre- Carriage/on-Carriage
MSC Austria offers to transport your cargo without a single meter on the road.
A full sustainable solution, not a single meter on the road, no congestions, a single point of contact using an existing efficient network without volume commitment.
MSC Austria is proud to offer a “100% pure rail pre-carriage/on-carriage” to its customers in cooperation with the OEBB group subsidiaries Terminal Service Austria, Rail Cargo Operator, Rail Cargo Austria, and other valued local partners such as LCA and LEX in Villach and TO Delta, Alpe Adria and Trieste Marine Terminal in Trieste.
CFS to CFS (container freight stations)
MSC Austria connects the existing Austrian railway infrastructure counting many private railway sidings to the shunting yard of Villach Fürnitz thanks to the existing Single Wagon Load service offered by OEBB. The conventional wagons stuffed or unstuffed in Villach will be transported individually in the Austrian network being competitive with the trucking market as there is no need of big volumes or commitments to access to this sustainable service.
In Villach the conventional wagons will be unloaded by the MSC Austria local partners LEX and TSA, the cargo will be then stuffed in containers and loaded onto the intermodal rail shuttle operated by RCO TO Delta and Alpe Adria running from Villach to Trieste till 3 times per week.

MSC's cargo handling facilities are strategically located to ensure the efficient and timely loading of goods for export and import. We also provide cargo consolidation, loading and re-loading, packing, unpacking and cross-loading services from containers to trucks.
All MSC local offices provide certified scales to record and verify container weight (verified gross mass or VGM) in line with Safety of Lives at Sea (SOLAS) regulations. VGM instructions are mandatory for all shipments for safety reasons and vessel operators can only load a container if its weight has been appropriately verified. Contact your local MSC team for more information and support.
