New Italy-Ireland Part-Load Services

#Port&Shipping – Samskip Multimodal, have announced a new part-load services (LCL/groupage) between Italy and Ireland offering an alternative to traditional road haulage part load services.

The new service is in addition to Samskip's existing full container loads.

Samskip will operate two weekly departures, combining the Milano-Rotterdam rail service and two weekly Rotterdam-Dublin sailings served on Tuesdays and Fridays. This will enable Samskip to provide fast deliveries for a competitive price while saving on CO2 emissions.

The new service's distribution network in Italy, brings an efficient shortsea service. This coupled with the Dublin-based distribution centre, is able to deliver cargo within one day of the capital's area and within 48 hours to the rest of Ireland after the arrival of the vessel.
