Bari, Italy (PortSEurope) January 13, 2021 – A new intermodal railway connection has started between the Interport of Parma and Giovinazzo, Bari, with a commercial stop in Lugo, Ravenna, due to a new cooperation between Lugo Terminal Spa and CePIM Spa. From Bari, cargo units will be able to continue throughout Southern Italy and take advantage of the maritime gateway for Turkey, Greece and the
Balkan countries. From Parma it will be possible to exploit the existing connections with France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Scandinavian countries. With a scheduled frequency of three weekly circulations which will become six weekly circulations by next June, the train will be able to load containers of different sizes, swap bodies and semi-trailers with profiles up to P400. It will also be possible to send waste and ADR/RID material. Terminal-to-terminal services can be purchased for those who own their own loading units, but it will also be possible to take advantage of the door-to-door service using the fleet of High Cube 45 ‘containers and P386 / P400 double profile semi-trailers owned by Lugo Terminal, which it is also able to run first and last mile with its own trucks. President of CePIM, Gianpaolo Serpagli, said that this was an important result conducted by Lugo Terminal, which we thank, and which resulted in the collaboration with CePIM Spa for the benefit of all Interporto di Parma, increasingly focused on moving goods over long distances by rail and promoting intermodal projects by integrating the offer to customers with first and last mile truck service . Lugo Terminal highlighted that with this service it will further strengthen its presence along the Adriatic route, concretely contributing to the Green Deal promoted by the European Commission and removing from the road, once fully operational, almost 15,000 trucks a year for an equal CO2 saving. to about 10,000 tons.
