TX Logistik boosts Germany-Italy train traffic
Trying to meet the market demand, TX Logistik, a major German rail freight operator, has increased the number of trains running on the route between Leipzig and Verona. Moreover, the Troisdorf-based company has boosted the capacity of the intermodal connection.
Two more trains were launched by TX Logistik on the Leipzig–Verona route on Tuesday, 5 April. As a result, the German company offers eight departures from both termini, the DUSS terminal in Leipzig and the Sommacampagna-Sona terminal near Verona, instead of six ones as it was before. On its way from Leipzig to Verona, the company’s freight trains make a stopover in Hall in Tirol, which is close to the Austrian city of Innsbruck. All services are provided by TX Logistik under its own control and include not only traction but also the marketing of the transport capacities.
The German intermodal specialist also increased the capacity of the connection from 32 to 34 intermodal units such as bulk and tank containers as well as swap bodies and semi-trailers (profile P400). “Goods of all kinds are transported on the route, including vehicle parts, recyclables, recycled and chemical products, and consumer goods,” TX Logistik specified.
Being a part of the Mercitalia Group (Gruppo FS Italiane), TX Logistik is strongly committed to the development of the Germany-Italy intermodal connections. In 2021, the rail freight operator also increased the train traffic between Leipzig and Verona from four to six trains per week. TX Logistik intends to continue the increase of train traffic on the Leipzig–Verona route in the coming future as there is a strong demand for more capacity on the connection. Besides Leipzig, the German specialist runs freight trains from Verona to several other destinations in Germany (Cologne, Herne, Lübeck, Rostock) and Denmark (Padborg). All of them also demonstrate a gradual growth in terms of freight volumes and train frequency.
