Genoa, Italy (PortSEurope) April 2, 2019 – A total of 1.5 million trucks were transported on intermodal routes in Italy, reducing the total weight of freight transported via the national road network by 40 million tonnes, offsetting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 1.2 million tonnes.
The data emerged from the study ‘Transport and logistics: ALIS studies the island economy’ of Italian association for sustainable intermodal logistics Associazione Logistica dell’Intermodalità Sostenibile (ALIS) study center.
“The study contains a detailed analysis of the evolution of traffic in Sicily and Sardinia and the relative impact on the ALIS cluster economy,” explains the president of the association, Guido Grimaldi. “Data have emerged showing persistent signs of weakness and instability with clearly recessive signals in the international environment”.
