Contship Italia Group’s Rail Hub Milano (RHM) provides supply chains with multiple opportunities: swap-body, trailers, deep-sea containers, euro pallet-wide containers, tank containers, bulk cargo and general cargo.
From the end of February 2015:
IFB, the well- known Belgian based multi-transport operator initiated a 3 x weekly round trip from/to the heartland of German industry in Duisburg
GTS, a leading domestic Italian multi-transport operator initiated a further international connection with 3 x weekly round trips to Rotterdam. This adds to the existing Rotterdam services, enabling RHM to act as a main hub for a total of 20 round trip connections to Rotterdam: the heaviest single concentration in Italy.
With frequency improvements to the various new connections expected, as traffic builds up on these segments, and even more trans-European destinations to be developed shortly, Sebastiano Grasso, Vice President responsible for the Group`s Logistics and Intermodal solutions, that include the intermodal hub operations, comments: ”...These are welcome additions to Rail Hub Milano activities, and we are hungry for more, as the hub is being developed for increasing possibilities. Contship Italia Group is committed to this market segment, not only to support our own Group activity, but also in tune with Group strategy to operate third party services. Being open and ready to serve multi-common users is an essential part of our DNA.”
