Arcese launched a new intermodal connection in Italy for large volume P400 semitrailers

Arcese expands its intermodal network adding the new Turin - Pescara - Foggia Adriatic line which has been operational since early February

The connection organized by Arcese and operated by Mercitalia Rail offers three departures per week, a transit time of less than 20 hours and allows the handling of up to 10,000 large volume semi-trailers per year.

The new service is perfectly integrated to the multimodal network of the Adriatic axis in addition to the existing ones: Novara-Pescara, Verona-Bari and Venice-Bari. Arcese network has connections all over Europe: from Spain to Romania, from Turkey to Scandinavia with over 50 daily departures.

Intermodal transport is a pillar of Arcese's business strategy for responding to the principles of sustainability and security that have always guided the Group's choices, but that’s not all. To date, 40% of full-load transport is carried out by rail or via the motorways of the sea: Arcese’s aim is to further expand its network in response to changes in the international transport sector. In fact, further constraints on road production capacity are expected to arise from multiple factors including, to name but a few, the European Community's Mobility Package, social dumping regulations and sectoral bans.

The new Adriatic line helps to the transport modal shift in Italy - from road transport to rail / sea - as well as connecting European intermodal services to domestic services, by reducing the first and last mile kilometers traveled and, directly, the number of circulating heavy vehicles and atmospheric emissions, for example allowing a saving of over 1 million kg of CO2.
