VIO - Vado Intermodal Operator Spa is a profit organization, which manages the Freight Village and Intermodal Terminal located just behind the seaport of Vado Ligure, a core RRT node of the TEN-T Network and part of the Rhine-Alpine Core Network Corridor. The Company shares are held by the Port Authority of Savona (72%) and Autostrada dei Fiori Spa -Gavio Group- (28%).
VIO is the only “interporto” (freight village and intermodal centre acknowledged by the Italian Law n. 240/1990) located in Liguria, providing logistics services to cargo coming both from the ports of Savona Vado and Genova, then distributed to the wide hinterland market of Southern Europe.
Since 1993, the Company has been constantly improving its facilities to cope with a growing business, achieving an outstanding position as one of the main logistics centres in Italy for coffee and food commodities.
The freight village stretches over an area of 232,000 sqm and offers a wide range of services to goods (storage, handling, customs clearance, consultancy for customs, fiscal and health matters, door-to-door distribution, picking and assembling etc) and carries out container stuffing and stripping, special cargo and break bulk unitisation, warehousing and logistics activities.
Furthermore, VIO has a central role in the development plan of the Multimodal System of Vado Ligure. The upcoming expansion of the port facilities promoted by the Port Authority of Savona and APM Terminals Vado Ligure Spa (Maersk Group), which includes the realization of a new 860,000 TEU deep-sea container terminal starting operation in 2018, strengthens the role of VIO as a provider of logistics and intermodal services to cargo flowing to and from Northern Italy and Southern Europe.
Aiming to handle the expected traffic increase, according to the highest efficiency standards, VIO and APSV will enhance the intermodal terminal, expanding the terminal area and optimizing the railway facilities.
