As of September 6, the company's trains will run between DUSS-Terminal Duisburg Ruhrort Hafen and Terminal Intermodale Milano Segrate six instead of five times per week.
The train set can take up to 34 loading units, including semi-trailers, containers, swap bodies, and tank and silo units.
The Duisburg-Milan route follows the Rhine via Zurich, through the Gotthard Tunnel, and then via Chiasso to Segrate.
"Since the expansion of the Gotthard axis has been completed, modern trailers with a corner height of four meters (profile P400) can be transported by rail through Switzerland without any restrictions. This has given an additional boost to demand on this route," TX Logistik underlined in a press release.
