Trieste will be connected to Nuremberg

As announced by the Italian port at Transport Logistic in Munich, new deals are been negotiated to develop intermodal services with Neuss (near Dusseldorf) and upgrade the ones to Luxembourg

As announced by the Trieste Port Authority at latest Transport Logistic in Munich, starting next July, bi-weekly TriNur (Trieste-Nurberg) connection, will be launched, to add further rotations by the end of this year.

The service -AdSP reported – was conceived in partnership by Danish ro-ro transport leader, DFDS, holding 60% shares in Samer Seaports terminal, and Alpe Adria, company committed to intermodal transport development of the Julian logistic system.

TriNur will connect Trieste molo V to Tricon intermpodal terminal of Nurberg, managed by  Bayernhafen group and, besides handling Turkey and Greece trade volumes, will also meet the Bavarian industrial system's export requirements.

“The new service to Nurberg – commented Zeno d'Agostino, President of the Authority – shows how our core business is progressively heading North. We confide Nurberg  might foster (for us and Bayernhafen) synercical cooperation with other market areas, like Poland or the Baltic Regions”.

Besides TriNur, Trieste port also announced they negotiated two accords to further develop intermodal relations, one of them with Kombiverkehr, aimed at launching a new corridor from/to Neuss Trimodal terminal, located on the Rhine near Düsseldorf and managed by the same group.

“Kombiverkehr was the first foreign operator to bet on intermodal development in Trieste”, stated Zeno D’Agostino adding that, by strengthening this new partnership, they will once again show their intention to develop internationally, particularly expanding to Neuss in partnership with a terminal boasting very high logistic potential. So far, recalls AdSP, the port offers 55 weekly connections to Germany.

The second agreement was sealed with Bettembourg-Luxembourg port, which, in partnership with CFL Multimodal, state-railway company's subsidiary, is being connected to Trieste since 2012.

The service is committed to trailers and semi-trailers and currently counts 9 weekly rotations.

The new accord targets further enhancing and upgrading railway links along the Trieste-Bettembourg-Dudelange corridor, even adopting technologies to board trailers without cranes supports.
