DH engages Metrocargo for intermodal service

Den Hartogh (DH) has commissioned Metrocargo Italia to transport its tank containers between Northern Italy (Mortara, Pavia) and Southern France (Miramas, Marseille) by rail.

The service, which has already started, uses traction provided by railway Fuori Muro Impresa Ferroviaria, in which Metrocargo Italia holds a 28.6% stake.

Multimodal operator Metrocargo Italia has been offering ‘door-to-door’ services between Italy and France since 2012. It also runs the only intermodal service between Italy and France through Ventimiglia.
