The La Spezia System provides a “SEAMLESS” transfer from ship to rail, with all customers benefiting from an average 173 trains on a weekly basis, an increase of 13 per week to all destinations, facilitating a single call to and from multiple markets, ensuring that cargo is delivered to the end user with some of the fastest and competitive end to end transit times in key market corridors such as Asia to the Milan region of Italy.
The La Spezia System does indeed bring the ship to your factory.
