The ownership of Swiss Combi AG consists of four family owned companies, Planzer AG (40% stake), Camion Transport AG (40% stake), Bertschi AG (10% stake), and
Galliker AG. The deal is subject to government approval and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020. SBB Cargo International is not included and will cpme under the parent
