Logistics Business Unit

Doubling the share of freight traffic by rail compared to 2019, improving existing terminals and creating new ones is the goal that the FS Italiane Group intends to pursue with the creation of the Logistics business hub. By working with a systemic perspective on the entire supply chain, with major investments that also include the digitization of the freight transport chain, Ferrovie dello Stato aims to make the sector more competitive and achieve the goals set by the UN 2030 Agenda: increase the share of rail freight from the current 11% – the majority still travelling by road – to the 30% demanded by Europe. A share that needs to increase rapidly and that today is below the European average (19-20%), well beneath the figure for Switzerland and Austria (around 35%) and the United States (46%).

The sector lead will be Mercitalia Logistics. Seven national and international operating companies are included in the cluster, including Mercitalia Rail, the largest rail freight company in Italy and one of the largest in Europe, Tx Logistik and Mercitalia Intermodal, the largest combined road/rail transport operator in Italy and the third largest in Europe.
