Intermodal connections are one of the key elements in the terminal strategic vision. For this reason, TMT keeps investing in order to improve both the intermodal and maritime services’ availability (short sea) which are considered a natural extension of the terminal services.
For import traffic, the receiver has three different options to get the cargo in EU Countries:
Customs clear the goods at Trieste. In this case an Italian VAT number must be available either through a direct fiscal representation or with a so called direct VAT identification (for further information please contact us directly);
Use a T1 to immediately receive the goods at destination and customs clear the goods after receiving them;
Use the CIM document, which allows the cargo to be transferred from Trieste to the rail terminal of its final destination without additional transit documents or requirements. This is the quickest and most economical way for importers who want to customs clear the goods (or issue a T1) at the final destination rail terminal.
All the above options allow the importer to maintain the potential benefits of the special Free Port Zone rules and regulations (if applicable).
