“Optimum time and maximum environment-friendliness...”
Intermodal Transportation is a transportation method that is conducted by using the same transport vehicle or container and two or more transportation modes. In this transportation mode, none of the cargoes in the vehicle or container are subject to any handling procedure in mode changeovers.
As Mars Logistics, we offer door-to-door delivery service by using various transportation modes to create added value and reduce their costs with our Intermodal transportation service.
In Intermodal Transportation that we launched with the slogan "Optimum time and maximum environment friendliness,” we perform timely delivery, low cost advantage and efficient and environment-friendly logistics. We ensure reduction in carbon emissions and prevent carbon release of 13 billion grams per year.
With our Intermodal transportation service, we provide our customers with regular transportation, regular loading and regular unloading possibilities and fixed price advantages. Furthermore, we ensure control and easy follow-up because all wagons are available in the same location and our Intermodal transportation service is less affected by adverse weather conditions compared to other transportation systems.
How Is Intermodal Transportation Realized?
We realize six round trips per week by trains between Trieste and Bettembourg. In these trips, the cargoes that are picked up from various regions in Turkey are carried by road to Istanbul, İzmir and Mersin seaports. Trailers disconnected from towing trucks are carried to Trieste by RO-RO. Trailers are loaded on wagons by Reach Steaker in Trieste and carried to Luxemburg by railway. Trailers that are connected again to towing trucks at the Bettembourg Multimodal terminal start going to various destinations in Luxemburg, Belgium, the Netherlands, UK, France and Germany by road.
We saved a total of 1.896.971 trees, that is, 4.742 hectares of forest in 2015 thanks to our Intermodal Transportation system which takes place between Turkey-Trieste by sea freight, Trieste-Luxembourg by rail freight and Luxembourg-Europe by road freight and caused less carbon emission compared to highway transportation (saved emission amount is % 36 CO2).
