Genoa, Italy (PortSEurope) February 3, 2021 – Transport companies Logtainer and Hupac will integrate their networks to offer fast and reliable high-frequency transport solutions for cargo moving between Southern Germany, Switzerland and Italy’s Ligurian ports. Future services will rely on “green” rail transport. The joint transport network will enhance the Ligurian ports that will benefit from an increase in national and international connections. The completion
of the construction works on the Italian rail network, including last-mile works in the ports as foreseen in the “Italia Veloce” plan, will generate strong growth in rail traffic. “The agreement with Hupac”, says Guido Nicolini, CEO of Logtainer, “will allow our customers and partners to develop and increase the traffic destined to the other side of the Alps that currently does not pass through Italian ports. Thanks to the synergy between Hupac and Logtainer, rail traffic will be intensified, meeting the needs of the market with significant environmental benefits in terms of CO2 savings”. Switzerland’s Hupac is the leading network operator in intermodal transport in Europe. Its network offers connections between the main European economic areas and to destinations as distant as Russia and the Far East, with around 150 trains per day. Logtainer is an Italian private operator for container transport on the Italian railway network. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
