Intermodal units handled in Trieste increase by 56%
Since the beginning of 2021, DFDS has been increasing its activity in the port of Trieste.
The railway service to Northern Europe grew significantly in 2021 and underlines Trieste as a strategic Hub for intermodal transport. From 2018 to 2020, the intermodal units handled in Trieste registered an increase of 56%.
Considering only the last year, the handlings of intermodal units by Samer Seaports have grown by 34%.
This is the result of an efficient and eco-sustainable policy, much appreciated by our customers, which enable the transport by train of about 50% of units arriving in Trieste by sea.
Considering the transport of units from Trieste to Cologne, we can achieve an average of 75% reduction of CO2 emissions by choosing transportation via train rather than road.
“We are happy to see the development in units arriving and departing with trains as this is a key part of the DFDS strategy”, Deputy Managing Director of Trieste Terminal, Emil Hausgaard says and continues: “Moving units by rail remains crucial for an efficient use of the limited space we have in Trieste and to grow the ferry business”.
Environmental sustainability is the future. That’s why we aim to assist in enabling intermodal transports to and from Trieste to grow even more.
