The Port of Trieste announces new train connection to Germany is active
TRIESTE - A new train connection linking the Port of Trieste and southern Germany, has bee active for the past few days. The link is between Pier VII, managed by Trieste Marine Terminal and Burghausen (KTB terminal), in Bavaria.
The connection was developed to service the Wacker Chemie AG, one of the leading chemical industries in Bavaria which will be shipping from the Port of Trieste. Shipments will be made across the Mediterranean, the Middle East and the Far East utilising Cosco and Msc as the supporting companies.
The train has a weekly frequency just like the other four trains to Munich and one to Ulm. The connection is managed by a partnership between T.O.Delta and Rail Cargo Group. This new train service is of particular significance because it broadens the market towards Central Europe, one of the main goals of the Port of Trieste.
“This new railway service to Bavaria confirms the international railway dimension of the Port of Trieste” said Port Authority Commissioner, Zeno D’Agostino. Logistics Director of Wacker industries, Thomas Bronnert commented that it was thanks to the cooperation of all the partners that the southern routes have become interesting and competitive. “With this new connection, the market and the port services offered by Trieste Marine Terminal as well as the railroad services of TO Delta towards southern Europe are widened, said TMT president Fabrizio Zerbini.
