The European Commission has imposed fines of €49 million on Express Interfracht, part of the Austrian railway incumbent Österreichische Bundesbahnen, and Schenker, part of the German railway incumbent Deutsche Bahn, for operating a cartel in breach of Article 101 for cargo 'blocktrain' services.  Kühne+Nagel of Switzerland also took part in the cartel but was not fined as it was granted immunity for revealing the existence of the cartel.  The Commission found that the three companies fixed prices and allocated customers for their "Balkantrain" and "Soptrain" services in Europe for nearly eight years.  Click here.
