SNCF Geodis has re-branded all its international rail subsidiaries under the name Captrain.
The new group will comprise SNCF Fret Benelux, SNCF Fret Deutschland, SNCF Fret Italia, Veolia Cargo Belgium, Veolia Cargo Deutschland, Veolia Cargo Italia, Veolia Cargo Nederland, Freight Europe UK, VFLI Romania and ITL Benelux.
SNCF Geodis says it now has 50 000 employees and a network covering 120 countries, with an annual turnover of €8bn. It believes that the creation of Captrain will help the operator ‘better meet the needs of its clients, carriers and forwarding agents and their increasingly European transport flows’.
SNCF Geodis said the decision to re-brand followed the acquisition of the companies, which have a combined turnover of €58m, over the last two years.
The decision stemmed from the need to re-name the Veolia operations because the brand is still being used by former owner Veolia Transport, and for SNCF Geodis to meet its objective of integrating its international activities.
