Focus Points

  • Strengthening Samskip’s multimodal network by adding a new point of entry in Italy, which allows for the transportation of P400 trailers
  • Enhanced reliability due to a reduced share of road haulage for transports into North-Eastern Italy, avoiding road congestion around Verona and Venice
  • Increased reduction of CO2 emissions on transports to and from Italy
  • Maximized payload potential due to multimodal transport
  • Having a connection to China on our terminal in Duisburg, the New Silk Road delivers a number of options for transports to and from Asia
  • Via road or barge, Duisburg is connected to Samskip’s shortsea hub in Rotterdam, for vessel connections to and from the UK and Ireland
