A block train is a dedicated and direct train for one customer, from point A to point B. This means that lead times are kept short. These trains have a high capacity in terms of length and volume.
Usually this involves the transport of large quantities of cars, coal, steel, chemicals, building materials, etc.
DB Cargo Italia runs block trains between Italy and neighbouring countries, mainly on the Corridor to Germany, and Nord Europe.
