TORELLO GROUP Together with GTS and DIF to innovate intermodal food logistics – Companies

“It is in the wake of innovation and responsibility that our partnership agreement with GTS, a rail transport operator from Bari, is based, which aims to strengthen the cold supply chain for food transport, in Italy and abroad”, reads the note released by the Torello Group to announce the collaboration with GTS and DIF.

“Yes, responsibility; because at the center of the collaboration is pan-European food distribution and we want to demonstrate that when serious companies and responsible families come together it is possible to create new virtuous logistical solutions.

But we decided to do much more, we also involved DIF – Distribuzione Italiana Food, our network dedicated to food & beverage distribution in which dozens of affiliates are committed daily to serving the last mile of food products in the GD, DO channels and Horeca.

It is worth giving some numbers to describe the scope of this agreement: over 7 thousand units that will strengthen the cold chain; 38 locomotives, over 3 thousand containers, 650 railway wagons, more than 300,000 m2 for the storage of food & beverage production at ambient and controlled temperatures, a varied road fleet of over 3,900 units and around 30 locations in Italy, France, Slovakia, Romania and Serbia.

“The food chain is a strategic sector for Italy, with an annual turnover of around 600 billion euros, i.e. 31% of the national GDP. These are numbers that invite us to always do better. Torello and our DIF Network have been leading players in the supply chain for some time now, not only in Italy but also internationally. Therefore the agreement with GTS is strategic, the integration with iron will ensure even more sustainable transport, traceability and correct temperature management”, declares CEO Umberto Torello.
