  • News from UIC members

The Marco Polo Express, developed by Italy Logistics (50% FS group and 50% SDA - Post Office) in collaboration with the Trenitalia Cargo Division (100% Ferrovie dello Stato) and Polrail (50% FS Group and 50% Polish Railways), connects Portogruaro (Veneto Region - Italy) with Brest (Belarus) in three days. This new integrated logistics service will enable goods to be transported to other destinations such as Scandinavia, Poland, the Baltic States, Russia and Kazakhstan, and even to the Far East. The new block train service will initially be run on a weekly basis.
