If you want to bring your wagons to Italy, you can now do that even more easily.
Thanks to a network of Italian and foreign partners, Inter-rail is able to provide rail traffic in Italy and abroad, including the last-mile rail management.
The professionalism of Inter-rail's own staff is integrated by the wide range of logistical services, and it can rely on a wealth of experience in the railway field, accrued over the years by the personnel in major private companies and within the Trenitalia Group. That has allowed the company to build an efficient network of national and foreign partners, with which Inter-Rail is able to guarantee a wide range of logistical services, while also being able to monitor the performance of ongoing transportation and to intervene timely if needed.
Inter-rail is able to organize the transfer of goods at the Udine and Cervignano terminals and the delivery and collection by truck to/from locations all over Italy, by making use of a professional network of well-known partners. We are also able to organize all the main activities to be carried out within the port areas of Trieste, Monfalcone, and Porto Nogaro.
Inter-rail is active in the field of national and international road transportation, too, carrying out shipments indirectly, i.e. by making use of standing collaborators of proven reliability and capability. These organize the freight, both by scheduled operations and with regard to urgent requirements of the customers. Vehicles having various sizes and capacities are used to supply the primary and secondary transportation services, and for the distribution.
The integration of transportation by road with that by rail or sea offers a broad range of intermodal shipments throughout all Europe, thus allowing a maximum of cost reduction and a minimum of environmental impact. Thanks to our customized consultancy, you can always be guaranteed the optimal solution for managing full and/or partial loads of intermodal loading units (swap bodies, semi-trailers and containers).
If shipped through our intermodal services, your goods always remain inside the same loading unit, from the place of departure to the destination, even though the transportation means change. The result is an efficient solution of combined transportation modes, particularly suitable for shipping heavy goods, such as steel and iron products, construction materials, tiles, timber and drinks.
Convenient, practical and environmentally friendly.
For your company, this means an agile, economic way of removing all the problems concerning the logistics of goods, thus optimizing space and time that you can dedicate to your core business.
We see logistical outsourcing as the management of transportation from the producer to the final customer, through warehousing, integrated activities, and accessory services. Our company goal is to offer a high-quality integrated distribution service.
Our computer system allows us to know in real time all the data concerning the arrival, stopover, departure and delivery of goods. This allows us to answer immediately any enquiry concerning the status of a shipment. At the same time, the logistical service intervenes in all stages of the shipment and can ensure the most reliable and complete management, satisfying the customer's requirements and any personalization he requested.
The whole operational activity is supplemented by the administrative procedures and the issuing of the documents.
Thanks to the expertise we acquired over the years, we are able to offer a broad range of accessory services, such as:
Logistics is no longer made up just by more and more flexible shipments and roomy warehouses. It is an integrated process in which computer science, the management of customs and insurance procedures, and the flow of information regarding each individual shipment are the real added value. In supplying logistical services, Inter-rail deems that a fundamental role is played by the value and professionalism of our human resources. That is why important resources are committed to carrying out training courses and professional training, in order to be able to take care of the whole administrative and bureaucratic procedures concerning the import/export shipments.
The acknowledgement that state-of-the-art logistics demands greater competencies and above all the ability to carry out the strategic management of a complex web of relationships with several parties brought Inter-rail, together with three partners –Interporto di Cervignano SpA, Marlines Srl and Midolini F.lli SpA– to the establishment of the NEST enterprise network agreement. The strategic choice was to join forces in order to form a team and to focus diverse experiences and competencies, so that an all-round solution can be found for all requirements for logistical services.
NEST can rely upon a direct presence in the three seaports of Friuli Venezia Giulia (Trieste, Monfalcone and Porto Nogaro), as well as in the Cervignano Intermodal Terminal, with outdoor work areas for a total surface of 232,000 sqm; warehouses for 40,000 sqm; 65 direct employees; an aggregate turnover of over 54 million Euros, amounting to over 4 million tons of shipped goods in 2012.
Integration, systemic vision, synergies, optimization of resources and quality of the services are the keywords steering Inter-rail's mission towards the achievement of three fundamental goals: improving and developing the services offered; creating a logistics network functional for railway transportation, in partnership with national and international logistical operators; creating the conditions to be the local part of a synergy with European-scale railway companies. In practice, the offer is for integrated logistics activities, featuring transportation and handling services, and the management of orders from the production plants all the way to the consumer markets of the large-scale distribution networks. The railway logistics operator intends to study customized projects for managing the flow of industrial products and solutions with a view to door-to-door deliveries. The main fields of activity are the steel and iron industry, the forestry products, and the logistical distribution of fast-moving consumer goods. The current Inter-rail's turnover share concerning activities that are not transportation by rail (warehousing, transportation by road, distribution, logistics) amounts to some 5% of the total turnover, with a strong potential for growth in the future. Railway transportation is our core business, but we are also able to supply a broad range of accessory services, such as:
The high-quality standards of the services and the availability of highly qualified personnel are the best guarantee when you entrust us with the management and organization of shipments, from the point of origin to the final destination.
