The road transport, due to the particular topography of the Italian territory and the lack of infrastructure in the Italian system, prompted the most forward-looking transport companies to diversify business structures, turning their attention to intermodal transport. The intermodal choice combines flexibility and efficiency to a growing sensitivity to the environment, drastically reducing pollutant emissions and safeguarding energy resources.
The European Union’s transport policy has stated that by 2030 30% of freight over 350 km should shift to rail. Intermodality is a basic strategic tool for optimal use of different transport modes. It stands out as one of the modes for the transport of goods on the medium-long distances with the least impact on the environment.
Every shipment shifted to rail reduces energy consumption and contributes to climate protection. In fact, on average, intermodal transport reduces CO2 emissions by 55% compared with only road transport. Sensitive to its social responsibility, the BRIO GROUP places the new logistics facility at the Interporto of Padova, in order to accommodate the trains directly at your facility, providing for the immediate loading and unloading of goods.
