Developing multimodal logistics to optimise goods transport is often a strategic and profitable choice. CNR offers solutions adapted to a wide range of needs that incorporate access to the waterway and the rail network.

Solutions for access to the waterway:

You can:

  • build your own wharf to control your river logistics;
  • use the services of a public port (operated by the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry) which carries out the loading/unloading of barges, and additional logistic services;
  • use CNR’s wharves to load and unload goods: infrastructures made available by CNR to manage spot/punctual traffic.

Rail access solutions

You can:

  • link your lot to a rail track by setting up at one of CNR’s 8 port sites with a railway link,
  • use the services of a public port operated by the CCI that loads/unloads trains, and provides additional services.
