Terminal Busto Arsizio-Gallarate

The Terminal Busto Arsizio-Gallarate combines the strength of a solid structure for the road-rail transhipment with the advantage of a strategic position. It is located in one of the major European economic areas, 20 km from Milan and 150 km from the port of Genoa. Its railway position is optimal thanks to the connections both to the north, via Luino, Domodossola and Chiasso, and to the rest of Italy. It is accessible directly via motorway and allows road vehicles to arrive easily to the trains and to move quickly on to their final destination.


The terminal was projected and realized according to the most state-of-the-art planning technologies, in order to combine efficient and quick work with safety and environmental protection. Every day dozens of trains connect the terminal with destinations in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Spain and Switzerland and perform a relevant hub function within the European intermodal network.
