special kind of forwarding traffic

Here the translation of a text I found (I haven´t heared this word before):

"Antennenverkehr" is a special kind of forwarding traffic. The crucial difference to gateway traffic is that the wagons together with the loading units on them are switched to the direct train to the end station. If it´s gateway traffic, however, the loading units are switched between the trains. That definition points out, that trains of "antennenverkehr" can´t be shuttle trains.

Notes to answerer
Asker: The context is **bus** transport, and wagons and loading units specifically apply to trains. Besides "special kind of forwarding traffic" is a description, not a translation.
