DINAZZANO PO SPA
DINAZZANO PO Spa is formed on 12/04/2002 by:
- “Azienda Consorziale Trasporti di Reggio Emilia”, which had the Reggio/Ciano and Guastalla/Reggio/Sassuolo railway lines in operation in addition to the management of the Dinazzano freight hub.
- “Ferrovie Emilia Romagna Srl”, which had the Parma/Guastalla/Suzzara, Suzzara/Ferrara, Bologna/Portomaggiore, Casalecchio/Vignola and Ferrara/Codigoro lines in operation.
DINAZZANO PO SPA then began to operate, introducing significant innovations in railway logistics, combining traction services purchased by Railway Companies, with logistics and terminalization services to provide customers with “door to door” freight packages. New rail connections are introduced with the port of Ravenna which, due to the limited distance from the ceramic district, was served exclusively by road services. This is followed by rail connections to the ports of Genoa, Livorno and La Spezia, which join the historic connections with Germany, France and other important European markets. Subsequently, a small freight port was inaugurated in San Giacomo di Guastalla (RE) which allows to serve an important company in the processing of steels. At the Dinazzano hub the volume of traffic has increased from 1,700,000 ton in 2001 to over 3,500,000 ton in 2019. In the Guastalla San Giacomo hub about 500,000 ton/year are terminalized. The Company has gained experience over the years by organizing and collaborating in the organization of traction and maneuvering services. It has also played a decisive role on the commercial front, acquiring new trades and customers.
In October 2012, the railway license issued by the Ministry of Transport was obtained, while in July 2013 the process to obtain certification under the European Directive 2004/49 transposed in Italy with Legislative Decree 162/07.
In 2014 Dinazzano PO obtained the safety certificate part A and part B issued by ANSF on the national railway infrastructure of the GI RFI, and the safety certificate by the INFRASTRUCTURE Manager RES.
