Rail Cargo Group connects Italy with Germany


With the TransFER Duisburg–Venice, the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) is putting a non-stop connection between the up-and-coming Adriatic port of Venice and the bimodal terminal in Duisburg on rail three times a week. Venice is at the top of the Italian port rankings and is on a growth course. The Veneto region thus plays a decisive role as a hub on the upper Italian Adriatic. With RCG, the port has found a reliable logistics partner to bring the increasing volume of freight traffic onto the environmentally friendly railways.

Bridge between Southern Europe and Northern Europe

RCG has been handling considerable volumes for the southern ports of Trieste, Koper and Rijeka for years. In 2018 alone, there were 3,365 trains at the Trieste Freeport, and the trend is rising. Now the port of Venice also plays a central role in the international network of the logistics professional. With the new direct train, the strongly aspiring Adriatic port will be connected to the transshipment hub in Duisburg as the gateway for transports to and from Scandinavia. RCG thus not only forms a bridge for combined transport between Italy and Germany, but also shortens transit times between northern Italy and the Ruhr region. In addition, the TransFER Duisburg–Venice product offers common ferry connections to Brindisi, Patras and Pendik, thus extending the logistics offer to Greece and strengthening it in Turkey. But customers from Scandinavia also benefit from a seamless connection to RCG's international network. With the train product, transfer connections from and to Scandinavia are offered from Greece, Italy and Turkey, so that freight forwarders can now reach the Scandinavian region directly and reliably by environmentally friendly rail. One product thus links the entire Northern European region with the Southern European region and links it to the Asian part of Turkey.
