Container terminals swap between trains and trucks and the final
stretch to the customer is nearly always by truck. This last trip can
be 200km long, although there is a tendency for more inland
terminals.
In Switzerland the final transport can be by rail if the customer has an industrial siding. These are mostly SBBC wagons that bring the containers from the terminal via RBL to the final destination. In other words, Swiss terminals also move containers rail - rail (apart from rail - road). And not to forget the containers arriving by ship in Basel and partly continuing by rail.
