Metrocargo system

Metrocargo Italia promotes Metrocargo, an innovative loading/unloading system which can be installed under the catenary without the need for any shunting activities and their related time and costs.
Thanks to its horizontal shift technology, unit loads can be loaded/unloaded from one train to another train (or to a truck) in one single automated operation, with complete safety and full respect of the environment.
Metrocargo has been conceived to significantly improve intermodal transport and to create an efficient logistic and rail system where competitiveness and sustainability can be combined: with Metrocargo it is possible indeed to move from a “point to point” to a “stop and go” approach, do intermediate stops and create a network for the first time.
