Fret SNCF has solutions specifically for your market, and its experts can design a customized transport plan just for you.

And Fret SNCF has positioned itself as a key player in the ecological transition. With the biggest fleet of electric locomotives in the industry, this SNCF subsidiary is the greenest rail freight company in France.
Fret SNCF has a unique, innovative operating model designed around capacity corridors, with 3 offers that cover the full range of customer needs—single wagons, half-trains, dedicated trains and combined trains.
By pooling cargo from different sources, Fret SNCF achieves higher load rates and makes the loading process more flexible and adaptable. A single train can consist of loaded wagons, empty wagons and a variety of cargo, delivering service that’s not only more frequent, but also more robust.
Get up to speed on applicable regulations, Fret SNCF pricing, general terms & conditions of sale and carriage, special terms & conditions, and customs requirements.
Thanks to its capacity corridors, Fret SNCF can run regular shuttles.
When the unexpected happens, any train can be a backup for another.
With Fret SNCF, you’re buying capacity, so you can get the best price—without having to adjust your output to the size of a train.
Whether you’re shipping in France or abroad, you receive a projected delivery date when you place your order.
Applies to all wagons, empty or loaded.
If there’s a delay, you’ll be notified—even for international shipments with Xrail.
Visit the Fret SNCF portal and place your order by 12.00 on the day before departure.
FerWay Solo is Fret SNCF’s single-wagon offer. Use it for individual wagons or groups of wagons.
Fret SNCF is the top rail company offering this solution. Why? Because single-wagon service supports local communities and businesses—even when they don’t need much capacity.
When you choose FerWay Solo, you’re booking capacity, so you’ll need to be more specific, placing a dated order with an exact origin and destination. In return, you’ll get more flexibility. You can book until 12.00 on the day before departure, just as you would with road transport.
Fret SNCF also offers comprehensive, end-to-end solutions, even if you don’t have your own sidings. These include:
