Ambrogio Intermodal’s new terminal is finally up and running
The first train left the brand new Ambrogio Intermodal’s terminal in Domegliara, near Verona, heading towards Neuss, in Germany. The terminal was inaugurated on 15 June and is expected to boost the shift to rail along the Scandinavian-Mediterranean TEN-T Corridor.
Construction for the terminal started in May 2022 and the facility was planned to start operations at the end of that year. However, some delays occurred because the terminal was not yet connected to the main rail network. The terminal covers an area of 110,000 square metres and is equipped with three tracks to handle 700-metre trains. Two reach stackers and one gantry crane are also in the terminal.
The Domegliara-Neuss train will run three times per week, allowing a connection between the northeast of Italy, the Ruhr area in Germany, and the Benelux region. This service was already running while Amborgio was waiting for the Domegliara terminal to be ready. Until now, the trains used to depart from the Valpolicella Railway Terminal, not too far from the location of the new facility. The company claimed that, with the new terminal, they are expecting to increase this service to four or five rotations per week.
Ambrogio Intermodal is one of the major Italian intermodal transportation companies on the national and international market. Funded in 1969, Ambrogio operates through a private European network, with 7 rail terminals, a fleet of 400 freight wagons and over 1,300 intermodal units.
The company can count on covered swap bodies and 45’ box containers, mostly used to transport dry cargo. The company takes care of the transportation of goods for various sectors: agro-food, petrochemical, steel, and paper, as Giulia Ambrogio said.
