XPO launches Italy-Germany multimodal route

XPO, a European logistics solutions company, has opened a new multimodal route between Italy and Germany that combines road and rail.

This daily route aims to provide XPO Logistics customers with a more environmentally friendly transportation option, travelling 900 kilometres by train from Domodossola, Italy, to Duisburg, Germany.

The new road mostly delivers retail, food, and auto parts. Furthermore, for each load transported, the firm saves around 1 tonne of CO2.

Technology is also used in XPO’s multimodal services. The firm utilises P400 semi-trailers on the Italy-Germany route, which are GPS-linked to a control tower that oversees operations in real time.

“XPO’s communication and capillarity are essential to provide this type of solution. Thanks to the collaboration of the XPO teams involved in the different countries, we can ensure the excellent operation of this multimodal route from beginning to end.”
