Beginning of 2002, the state railway Norges Statsbaner ( NSB) separated partially from its freight division NSB Gods.

The marshalling yard Oslo Alnabru east of Oslo Sentralstasjon is the main terminal. CN also leads performances by Sweden.
CargoNet focuses on the complete train and combined transport. These are the freight areas that are worthwhile in the density of the Norwegian railway network. Norway is a sparsely populated country where 80 % of the population live on the coast. Therefore, container and other removable containers make the transfer between ship, road and rail easier. In addition, Green Cargo operates single wagonload traffic in Southern Norway until after Drammen.
