Another gateway to Italy

The Belgium carrier Lineas is introducing another intermodal rail link between Belgium and Italy. It will open Piadena as a new gateway to Italy for intermodal trains and comes on top of the successful Ghent-Segrate connection that was launched a year ago.


The daily intermodal train will run from the Interface Terminal in North Sea Port (Belgium-The Netherlands) to the Pesanti terminal in Piadena (Italy) and allow to shift another 15,000 containers from road to rail.


The new line will begin with five weekly roundtrips and the fill rate is currently at 80% filling up fast. Trains will carry chemicals, steel, tiles, household goods, bulk, and powders in all types of containers. (ben)
