Since its establishment in 1984, the COMPANY has had an only important goal: to look for solutions combining operational cost reduction with a low environmental impact.
Within this context the combination of the two factors costs/environment would guarantee significant competitive advantages not only to Trans Italia but also to the whole industrial sector that, in the south of Italy, is penalized by its decentralized position as regards its reference markets.
With these goals and with a pioneer spirit, the Owners, being aware of the financial risks and not only, that their action would cause, already in the mid ‘90es, in close collaboration with the shipowner Grimaldi, have given place to the first sea intermodal connection that every week and by a dated Ro-Ro ship linked, at that time, Salerno to Barcelona.
This is how the “sea motorways” were born. Years later, in June 2001 in Goӧteborg, the European Community adopted them with the purpose of improving connections with the peripheral regions of the European Union and drastically reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
At the same time, the big investment made by the company in equipment
and immobilizations, the directly controlled branches and subsidiary companies set up in Spain, Portugal, Tunisia, Greece, Slovenia- its direct presence at the main Italian ports (Salerno,Civitavecchia, Livorno,Savona, Ravenna, Brindisi, Catania and Palermo)- the shipowner Grimaldi who today boasts the fastest and most modern fleet of Ro-Ro ships in the Mediterranean - made it possible to develop a well organized network of sea intermodal connections that, with fast and reliable services and at a low price, has allowed the enterprises in Southern-central Italy to open themselves to far away markets from which they were excluded.
As leading company in Italy in the use of sea motorways, Trans Italia s.r.l. is working,, with quality services, also in all the other Countries of continental Europe. Along these traffic routes, in order to protect the environment and reduce costs, it is planning to make use of the railway modality, that as regards organization, equipment and availability of special trailers is already at an advanced stage of realization. Within this context it has opened new branches in Verona for connections with central Europe and in San Giorgio di Nogaro (UD) for the markets of Eastern Europe.
