(ANSA) - TRIESTE, AUG 30 - The Pordenone freight village (Interporto Pordenone), one of the most important in northeastern Italy, thanks to its crucial position on the Adriatic-Baltic and Mediterranean routes, is further enhanced by a new connection between Italy and Germany.

This decision was reported recently by intermodal operator Hupac, specifying that as of September 5, departures on the Duisburg-Pordenone route, launched three years ago, thus increasing roundtrips per week from three to six.

The connection has a transport capacity of P400 profile units, reads the online description at Hupac's official website. The Pordenone freight village, which has been undergoing substantial enhancement in recent years, boasts four trans-shipment tracks for 750-meter-long trains, among other things.

Hupac, again concerning Italy, informed that it would also increase the frequency of connections on the intermodal network between Ludwigshafen and Novara, starting September 5, with six roundtrips instead of the previous five. In addition, an increased capacity of the Venlo-Busto Arsizio shuttle is also planned (from five to six courses per week). Hupac, founded in 1967 in Chiasso, is among the most significant network operators in intermodal transport in Europe, with more than 150 trains operating daily. (ANSA).
