Rail Freight

Efficient and cost-effective rail freight services from one of Europe’s best freight forwarding companies

Efficient Rail Freight Services

As part of our Multi-Modal freight services we offer economical rail freight transport, from both Spain and Italy, sitting perfectly in between our road and sea freight operations. Since Brexit back in 2020 our Inter-modal rail solutions have become more and more popular due to the increase in road freight costs throughout Europe. With relatively short transit time ranging from 7 to 10 days inter-modal freight is a good option for any bulk cargo that is not time sensitive.

All of our rail freight is loaded on to 45ft units. These units can have curtain or hard sides allowing goods to be loaded from the back, side and even the top in some cases. Using the many rail terminals throughout Europe we can make daily collections and are able to get the goods on their way within days.

Over the past few years our European Inter-modal services have become very popular from both Spain and Italy as they offer both affordability and reliable transport routes that see goods delivered in a timely manner. At Plexus Freight we can also handle all manner of customs in both the country of origin and the country of delivery. This ensures that the customs mechanisms are handled correctly, leaving the client to focus on their day to day business operations.

Freight To Italy
Multi-modal freight from Italy, or Inter-modal as it is often called, is a large part of our import operation as it allows us to ship goods for our clients both economically and at speed. Using main rail terminals such as that in Milan we are able to make daily collections from all parts of Italy and rail northbound, within days, using 45ft curtain or hard sided containers, which carry up to 33 euro pallets (non-stackable) or 26 UK pallets. On arrival in the UK we arrange delivery, well in advance, with all our clients giving an average transit time of 10 working days. With over 25 years of experience of shipping from Italy to the UK we are well placed to assist you with your requirements, whether you need to ship goods via rail, or using groupage, part & full loads or via express van.
