Captrain Italia will provide a new rail connection between the Trecate refinery and Venice's Porto Marghera in Italy through a new fuel route in partnership with rail and multimodal freight forwarder FORWARDIS.

It is planned that in 2023, 45 trains will cross northern Italy carrying fuel, which, in turn, means that 2,200 trucks will be taken off the road, thus preventing carbon dioxide emissions and improving road safety in the region.
