INTERMODAL transport and terminal operator Contiship Italia Group has embarked on its fifth roadshow in Asia, focusing on its Southern Gateway Alternative, an efficient way of delivering cargo in and out of central and South Europe.

A senior management delegation led by Daniele Testi and Peter Hill has visited Seoul and Shanghai, with events in both cities being well received. More than 100 professionals attended from the logistics, freight forwarding and maritime sectors.

“Contship Italia started its Asia Roadshows program five years ago. This time, during our discussion and the dialogue sessions, we noticed there was a significant increase in risk management awareness,” Mr Testi said.

“Compared to our previous visits, shippers and logistics service providers here are proactively exploring viable alternatives to diversify their transport chain and offer their final customers product differentiation, focusing on value instead of only cost.”

Industry professionals also learnt about Contship Italia’s extended rail connectivity as well as its integrated and reliable port-to-rail network in the Eurozone, how this integrated model provides shippers an opportunity to save on inventory costs and to gain instant access to almost 50% of Italian GDP within 300km.

The Contship Italia 2019 Asia Roadshow now moves onto Hong Kong, followed by Taipei. The delegation will conclude its roadshow in Singapore on 1 November.
