Although a complex system combining transport by rail, ship and road, intermodality is often also the greenest. An efficient and highly developed intermodal system means greater environmental and economic sustainability.
In Italy the “on road” transportation is still 10% above the European average (85% in Italy against 75% in Europe), partly due to the characteristics of Italy’s geography and fragmented production system.
It is essential to improve Italy’s competitiveness introducing new technologies to reach a higher level of sustainability in this area.
Companies operating in road haulage, rail transport and maritime transport, as well as all intermodal operators, have long been calling for the opportunity of working more at international level.
This is now possible, thanks to the enhancement of European intermodal corridors affecting Italy.
