THIS MONTH is due to see the start of a restructuring at the European intermodal and refrigerated freight co-operative Intercontainer-Interfrigo. The aim is to link costs and revenues directly, and focus attention on the quality of service provided by the 29 partner railways.

ICF will become a holding group, and each route will be run as a limited company owned by the railways concerned. They will take over all commercial and marketing responsibility, although ICF will still provide central services.
