Multimodal network development continues with the new connection between Italy and Romania.
As of May 2017 Arcese shall expand its intermodal services with the addition of a new route connecting Italy and Romania. The Verona - Curtici line shall be integrated with pick-up and delivery services to Romania: Arad, Bucuresti and Iasi are just some of the major destinations within reach thanks to the Arcese network. Curtici is a particularly strategic choice, an important hub connecting flows between eastern and western Europe, as well as being western Romania's most modern terminal.
This latest investment is part of a more ample strategy for the development of a highly integrated intermodal network in Europe. Arcese is aware that intermodal transport, in addition to being the most efficient choice for medium-long distances, is increasingly confirming itself as a transport solution, which guarantees flexibility and optimal integration between different loading units.
For years Arcese has acknowledged the commercial and social advantage of combining different modes of transports, especially in terms of the sustainable development of its own business. Indeed, intermodal shipment solutions combine flexibility and efficiency with increased consideration for the environment. Suffice it to understand that each shipment carried out by rail enables roughly a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions, compared to shipment on road alone. In this context, the new Verona - Curtici route means that we are now well on our way towards sustainability and efficiency.
