U.N. Ro-Ro, a company offering intermodal transportation services for Ro-Ro lines between Turkey and Europe, continues to expand its connections and destinations. A new rail service via Antwerp will connect to their existing Trieste-Wels-Trieste train which was in operation since 2013. The new line will be run two times a week in both directions. All types of semi-trailers and 40/45 dc containers, tank containers will be accepted for transport on this line.
