XPO LOGISTICS LAUNCHES NEW ROUTE BETWEEN ITALY AND GERMANY
This daily route offers XPO Logistics' customers a more sustainable transport alternative by travelling 900 km by rail from Domodossola in Italy to Duisburg in Germany.
XPO has launched a new multimodal route between Italy and Germany by combining road and rail. The new route mainly transports retail, food, and automotive components. In addition, the company saves about 1 ton of CO2 for each load carried, which is equivalent to the emissions saved by more than 14,600 trees in one day.
Technology also plays a role in XPO's multimodal services. On the Italy-Germany route, the company uses P400 semi-trailers, which are linked by GPS to a control tower that monitors operations in real time. Thanks to this system, the company improves the efficiency of the service and offers greater precision and security to the customer, who is always informed of the status and location of the product.
In recent months, XPO Logistics has been providing its customers with transport alternatives that meet sustainability goals while maintaining operational efficiency. The company currently operates multimodal routes combining rail and road between Barcelona - Bettembourg (Luxembourg); Barcelona - Duisburg (Germany); Perpignan - Valenton (south of Paris); Le Boulou - Calais (France), and Novara (Italy) - Duisburg (Germany), as well as others using short sea shipping, such as those linking the ports of Santander and Liverpool and the ports of Barcelona and Valencia with Savona, in Italy.
