You need an Italy specialist for your transports to Italy, a transport partner who is familiar with Italian rules, culture and geography. Every day, trucks loaded with groupage freight leave Etten-Leur for Italy, Malta, Sicily and Sardinia. If your shipment is not urgent, why not opt for Smart Modal Solutions instead of our scheduled service? This involves the use of multimodal transport with a longer transit time and lower costs.

Longer transit time, lower costs
Are you happy for your shipment to take three days or more to reach its destination? This extra time allows us to group shipments smarter and transport them more cheaply via combined road-rail transport. The longer the transit time, the lower your freight costs will be. We expect to be transporting 80% of our volume to Italy by rail in 2020.
Rail transport to Italy every day
Rail transport to Italy is a slower, but cheaper and more sustainable alternative to road transport. We transport your shipments in transport containers or Huckepack trailers via our daily Rotterdam-Busto train connection. Our Bas Logistica and Hereijgers Benelux Transport business units are responsible for collection and delivery.
