Between Zeebrugge (Belgium) and Novara (Italy), shipments will be transported by rail. From there the goods are further distributed to their final destination by road. This provides a sustainable and economically beneficial alternative to solely road transport. Due to the use of multimodality, less CO2 is emitted and the high fuel prices are partly avoided. "Furthermore, the service level remains the same, goods arrive at their final destination within the same transit time," says Rudi Debras (managing director Wim Bosman Belgium).
