Rhenus Logistics offers Home Delivery transport service by train in Italy

Rhenus Logistics Italy has completed its first home delivery transport by train on 29 May from Northern Italy to the Campania region. The transport marks the start of the official addition of this weekly service to the Rhenus portfolio in Italy.

Friday, 21 June 2019

Offering sustainable transport options is important to Rhenus Logistics Italy. That is why the logistics service provider continues to find innovative transport solutions for home delivery services within and between cities, including electrical or natural gas-powered vehicles. The newest solution is the activation of a train service that can travel between the North and the South of Italy in three and a half hours both northbound and southbound, starting from the North at 3:00 am and from the South at 8.30 am.

The overnight train service transport, loaded with 64 roll containers in each train carriage, started on 29 May. Each roll container can carry a net weight of 220 kilograms in total. The service is available for different kinds of general cargo including non-perishable food.

“The new service provided by Rhenus Logistics Italy has passed its initial test. Using the rail connection for the Home Delivery service highlights the adaptive approach of our company towards the needs of both the market and the protection of our planet,” said Davide Guglielmo Tassone, Managing Director at Rhenus Logistics Italy. “Thanks to the increase of this intermodal express service, we are playing our part in the reduction of CO2 emissions.”

The roll containers were first loaded from a freight terminal in the North of Italy onto a high-speed freight train and travelled overnight to Campania. Early in the morning of the next day, the goods were unloaded at the Campanian freight terminal, where they were picked up by Rhenus and immediately distributed.
Part of the goods was delivered to Campania the same day, while the other part was delivered to Calabria on the following day.
