  • Trains run between Transmec’s own private terminal at Oradea and Piacenza, with a fixed transit time of 40 hours
  • Collection and distribution services operate throughout Italy, Romania and neighbouring countries
  • Access to 800 owned Huckepack trailers and 150 owned swap bodies plus more than 2,500 45-feet containers
  • All trailers and containers are equipped with satellite alarm systems for constant traceability
  • Storage is available at Transmec’s secure warehouses.

Limited risk from COVID-19/coronavirus – the intermodal service involves minimal human contact compared to other forms of transport.
