Lineas activates a new train service between Belgium and Italy

Connection between ghent and Piadena terminals

Belgium's Lineas will activate a new rail service between the port of Ghent and the intermodal terminal of the Transport Heavy in Piadena (Cremona) which will be added to the first connection with Italy started last year by the company logistics on the Ghent-Segrate line. The new service includes five departures per week in both directions. "Beyond to the 70 trains that we already operate between Belgium and Italy - underlined the commercial director of Lineas, Lars Redeligx - now we will add more capacity to allow you to transfer another 15,000 containers to rail. This will be good for the climate, with CO2 emissions nine times lower compared to road transport and therefore with 9,000 tons of CO2 fewer emitted into the atmosphere every year." Lineas has announced to have moved about 10,000 containers last year on the Ghent-Segrate line.
