DSV are now operating a daily rail service via two crossings, one in the north and one in the south to expedite transit times between the UK and Italy. Depending on the collection or delivery postcode either Hull or Tilbury will be utilised to offer a transit time of 5 to 8 working days.

Regardless of the port of exit when departing the UK, the vessel sails to Zeebrugge, Belgium where the trailers are placed on the train for onward delivery to Novara in Italy. On arrival in Novara we arrange collection of the trailers and delivery to the final destination point. The same routing is used for Imports into the UK from Italy.

Utilising the rail solution offers great flexibility in both pricing and transit time, not to mention the environmental benefits. 

At DSV we are constantly looking to create advantageous transport solutions for our clients which will benefit the environment, through this service we are able to do this. The rail solution also enables us to accommodate ADR consignments.

Denise Clarke – Senior Director commented “Following on from the launch of the rail freight solution between the UK and Spain, we have been very happy with the service and have received many positive responses from our customers. Following on from this success, we believe that adopting the same approach utilising rail between the UK and Italy will be the perfect solution to further improve our environmental footprint. Similar to the UK/Spain service, we will operate to and from certain postcodes in each country and as the operation is developed further, we will expand the coverage further.”
