CMA CGM and its subsidiary CEVA Logistics have started a new weekly intermodal service from the port of Trieste in Italy to Central and Eastern Europe.

The first block train operated at Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG’s Italian multi-purpose terminal “Piattaforma Logistica Trieste” (HHLA PLT Italy) launched on 4 June.

Antonio Barbara, managing director of HHLA PLT Italy, said, “It is an important milestone for HHLA PLT Italy and for us, it is a clear sign of the attractiveness of the terminal and trust put by one of the leading shipping Groups in our terminal.”

CMA CGM is already calling HHLA PLT Italy with its weekly TMX3 maritime service, linking the port of Trieste with Ambarli, Gemlik and Gebze in Turkey as well as with Malta.

“With this new intermodal service, the CMA-CGM Group enriches its service offering in the Adria region with HHLA PLT Italy and gains a competitive connection with important markets in Central and Eastern Europe,” commented Paolo Lo Bianco, managing director of CMA CGM Italy.
