TX Logistik adds more trips via the Brenner Axis
Resulting from a growing customer demand, TX Logistik’s service between Leipzig in Germany and Verona in Northern Italy will get an extra weekly train trip. The addition will apply from 10 May, and the company will offer now five complete roundtrips per week between the two destinations. Moreover, if everything goes according to the plan, the service could acquire extra itineraries soon.
The train between Leipzig and Verona also makes an intermediate stop at Hall in Austria’s Tyrol region. TX Logistik will also serve this destination in all its five weekly trips and for both directions. Additionally, the train can carry up to 32 loading units per time, including bulk and tank containers, swap bodies, and semi-trailers. As for the transported products, these can vary from vehicle parts and recycling and chemical products to consumer goods.
Focus in the Brenner region
TX Logistik seems to recognise the importance of the Brenner corridor and the benefits of connecting Germany with the economic centres of Northern Italy. That is why it is not the first time it upgrades a service through this region. In March, the rail logistics company added a seventh weekly itinerary between Lubeck in Germany and Verona.
Furthermore, in June, it will add a seventh weekly trip between Patenborg in Denmark and Verona, which also passes through Germany and the Benner Axis. In general, with the new service additions, TX Logistik runs 41 roundtrips with 82 trains every week via the north-south Brenner pass.
Apart from the Brenner corridor, TX Logistik accesses North Italy via Switzerland and specifically the Ceneri Base Tunnel. On 11 January 2021, the logistics company, in cooperation with Arcese, launched a new intermodal freight service on the Swiss corridor between the Interporto of Bologna (Italy) and the TKN north terminal in Cologne (Germany). This rail link runs five times per week and has a P400 semi-trailer profile.
Finally, just a few days ago, TX Logistik announced its service expansion in another route, this time between Cologne and Curtici in Romania. Starting also on 10 May, this service will connect one of Romania’s most significant industrial regions with the heart of Germany daily. It had already seen two upgrades since it started with three weekly roundtrips and then moved to five, but now it will have a train running between the two countries every day.
