By opening a new branch in Europe, Transmec aims to increase load capacity for all branches of the Group, thanks to the creation of a network of subcontractors for round trips and third-party transportation partners for one way trips.

Recently, the Group has also invested €5.5m for the purchase of 200 Huckepack trailers.
The new trailers will allow for train transportation and for loading from above and from the side.
New shipment routes will be introduced: Italy-Belgium, Italy-the Netherlands, Italy-Great Britain, Italy-Romania.

“There is a growing interest for intermodal freight transportation – says Danilo Montecchi, CEO of Transmec – and the latest investment will improve our services, offering transportation solutions that are flexible, economically viable and environmentally friendly to our customers.”

To date, Transmec Group, in collaboration with P&O Ferrymasters, operates three weekly train freight trips between Curtici (Romania) and Zeebrugge (Belgium) by their own train and the company is planning a new freight transportation service between Italy and Romania, which is going to start in June 2015.
