Trieste, Port and Dry port continue integration
TRIESTE – The Authority that manages Trieste’s port of call continues to expand the complete integration between the Port and the inland terminal while expecting the new “free port zone” to be operational in the next few months.
Recently the logistical company Alpe Adria, received 15 road tractors which had undergone preparations to operate as loading cranes for containers. But most important is the railway shuttle Ro-La which connects the seaward area to Fernetti’s dry port a few kilometres away from the sea. The use of this short distance service represents a highly innovative solution for intermodal transports and provides considerable logistical and ecological advantages. The railroad shuttle with its daily frequency, will allow for a yearly reduction of over fifteen thousand heavy trucks from the main roads.
