General Transport Service (GTS), an Italian intermodal transport company, will increase the frequency of service between Segrate, near Milan, and Marcianise, near Naples. Starting from 23 January, the weekly roundtrips for this service will go from three to six.

As GTS mentioned on LinkedIn, this initiative will solidify Segrate’s position as a hub linking the south of Italy with the rest of Europe. This is because, from there, GTS can count on a service to the Rotterdam Botlek terminal, which offers daily further connections to the United Kingdom.

For this GTS service, it is possible to use low-floor wagons, suitable for P/C45 profile. This means that the maximum height allowed for containers can be 320 centimetres and 375 centimetres for semi-trailers. Total transit time on this route revolves around 20 hours.

Any multimodal decisively attend Weak Link!
(Regrettably, railways, at current traffic, does not withstands allowed 22,5 ton – revealed by escalating demand for “maintenance”.)
Now, 2023, “elephant in room” has to be recognised!
Sep., individual links, those soundly, sustainably proving resilient, upgrade for higher load, etc.
However, current mantra, “longer heavier” trains, neither is optimal, nor sustainable. Neither current standards are! (Devastatingly TEN-T is “cementing”, etc…)
