In May, construction work began at the new Ambrogio Intermodal terminal in Domegliara, which aims to strengthen intermodal rail-road connections on the north-south European axis via the Brenner.
The project covers an area of over 110,000 square meters and includes five tracks up to 700 meters long, a warehouse, and administrative buildings. Intermodal operations are scheduled to begin by the end of this year, with the completion of work on the first three tracks and the yard. A gantry crane will be installed to handle the loading units, together with a reach stacker and two terminal tractors. Upon completion of the project, the operational potential of the new terminal will be more than 3,000 intermodal train pairs per year.
Ambrogio has been present in Domegliara since summer 2020, when it launched the intermodal connection to Neuss, Germany, operating from the adjacent Valpolicella Railway Terminal. In response to growing demand, this connection has been strengthened in recent months, increasing the frequency from 2 to 3 departures per week in each direction. Thanks to the construction of the new terminal, the transport capacity will grow significantly further.
The terminal in Domegliara is the third Ambrogio terminal in Italy, after Candiolo (Turin) and Gallarate (Varese), and will be the Ambrogio Group's largest in Europe in terms of surface area. The total investment in this new facility shall exceed twelve million euros.
