MSC to Launch Adriatic Rail Service


Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has announced it will launch a new intermodal freight rail service between the inland container terminal in Giengen, Germany and Trieste, Italy.

According to MSC, the second biggest container shipping line in the world, the service will offer an A-B connection between central Europe and the Adriatic, and in doing so, it will also improve the movement of trade between Asia and the Mediterranean.



Furthermore, it will also ease congestion on other inland European terminals. The new service is due to begin operations in November 2018 and will run two round trips per week.
