Hupac maintains substantial minority shareholdings in various companies within the field of combined transport:


SBB Cargo International Ltd, Olten

Since the start of 2011, Hupac has held a minority interest of 25% in the Swiss carrier for international block-trains and combined transport on the North-South axis. The aim is to establish SBB Cargo International as a strong, lean freight railway by integrating logistical know-how from the private sector. This stimulates the market and creates additional incentives for modal shift. Cooperation with SBB Cargo International was successful. It was possible to expand transportation undertaken for Hupac. The existing quality problems have been recognised and are being addressed systematically.


Mercitalia Intermodal SpA, Milan

Since the 1970s, Hupac has maintained close collaboration with Cemat, the Italian combined operator, which was renamed as Mercitalia Intermodal at the start of 2018. At the end of the reporting year, Hupac's capital holding remained unchanged at 34.48%.


RAlpin Ltd, Olten

In conjunction with SBB, BLS and Trenitalia, Hupac is a partner of the company established in 2001 to operate combined transport through Switzerland.

Hupac handles many tasks on behalf of RAlpin, such as customer service, dispatching and invoicing for the Rolling Highway on the Lötschberg and the Gotthard axis. In addition, Hupac performs agency services in the Lugano terminal and also in the Novara terminal through its subsidiary, Fidia.
