Geneva, Switzerland-based Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has announced a significant expansion of its business in Italy with the launch of a logistics and intermodal company called Medlog Italia.
Genoa-based Medlog Italia will invest in inland logistics platforms, warehouses, trucks, and locomotives “facilitating logistics efficiency for the benefit of customers”.
The company was formed 12 months ago, since when it has been recruiting managers and professionals for the new team. It said that its mission was to control the logistics chain of cargo shipments both to and from Italy.
The first container train directly controlled and operated by Medlog Italia was expected to launch in 2020, said Splash, citing unnamed sources.
MSC controls or participates in several container terminals in Italy, including Calata Bettolo and Intermodal Marine Terminal in Genoa, La Spezia Container Terminal in La Spezia, Lorenzini Terminal in Leghorn, Roma Terminal Container in Civitavecchia, Conateco in Naples, Medcenter Container Terminal in Gioia Tauro, Adriatic Container Terminal in Ancona, Terminal Intermodale Venezia in Venice Marghera and Trieste Marine Terminal in Trieste.
