Thanks to the partnership among Trieste Marine Terminal (TMT), Rail Cargo Operator and Alpe Adria, starting from September 11th (departure from Trieste) the “Bavaria Express” block train service to Munich Riem will increase its frequency from five to six circulations per week. “Bavaria Express” links Trieste with Munich overnight and is settled to optimize the just in time connection between the trains and the main shipping lines services calling the container terminal of the Port of Trieste.
During the month of July Trieste Marine Terminal handled over 62.000 TEU, the highest monthly performance ever recorded. Despite the empty container handlings remain lower than last year, direct full import and export containers keep growing in particular thanks to the cargo in transit to and from Central and Eastern Europe.
Also during July the volume flow moved by rail recorded a very significant increase compared to the same month of 2017 (+64%), closing the first 7 months of the present year with +50% compared to the same period of 2017. The rail network available to/from Trieste Marine Terminal will be further enlarged.
