Samskip kicks off rail service from Amsterdam to Milan
After Nunner Logistics, logistics service provider Samskip has also opened a rail shuttle from the TMA Logistics HCT terminal in the port of Amsterdam. Officially launched on October 17, the connection sees trains depart from Melzo (east of Milan) three times a week, which arrive at HCT in Amsterdam 24 hours later.
It is an important addition to the existing shortsea service of the shipping company between the capital and the British city of Hull, according to Samskip.
With the new direct rail service from Amsterdam, three times a week, Samskip now has access to nine rail services during the week between the Netherlands and the Italian company Melzo. The other six have Rotterdam as their starting point. For all shuttles, there is close cooperation with the Swiss railway company BLS.
