GTS and Shuttlewise are connecting Rotterdam with Bologna
As from March 14th GTS and Shuttlewise will explore a new service between Rotterdam Cobelfret terminal and Bologna Interporto. This new service will, after a short trial, start with 3 roundtrips per week. The aim is to increase the frequency to 4 and 5 times on short notice and a stop at RSC Rotterdam could be part of this. From Bologna there are daily connections to Bari, Pomezia and Nola.
This service is a cooperation between initiator GTS, a Bari-based logistic service provider with own locomotives, wagons and containers, and Dutch intermodal operator Shuttlewise.
GTS is already running own trains between Bari-Bologna, between Bari-Piacenza and between Piacenza-Zeebrugge. Next to that they have a fleet of over 1.500 containers 45ft running between the axle Greece – Italy – France – Benelux – UK and Ireland.
Shuttlewise is already running a service between Rotterdam-Mortara and between Venlo-Mortara. Shuttlewise has no own equipment, but acts like a neutral organizer of their services.
With this co-operation GTS and Shuttlewise want to further develop the axle Rotterdam – Eastern Italy with easy connection to the south of Italy.
