Today the company has the capacity to integrate the marshalling operations inside the port with a traction service towards the inland terminals in the Northern Italian port catchment area. Since 2012 FuoriMuro also offers daily services to France via Ventimiglia.
In 2014 FuoriMuro received the prestigious award for “Best European Freight Railway Operator” in London at the European Rail Congress.
