In the Seventies, the birth of the first few infrastructural clusters known as freight terminals or freight villages paved the way to intermodal transport – i.e. using different freight transport modes – and laid the conditions for a rearrangement of urban space, inspired by rationality, operating and economic efficiency and, no less importantly, a good quality of life and eco-sustainability.

So, freight terminals are now the backbone that goods move up and down Italy through. This is the scenario in which the idea of the Parma Freight Terminal came up. So, Centro Padano Interscambio Merci (CePIM) was founded in 1974 in partnership with ENI, local boards, the regional authorities of Emilia Romagna and a few banks, to design, implement, promote and coordinate the development of the freight terminal.

Over forty years later, CePIM is still there as the coordinator of the Parma freight terminal. In this capacity, it manages and promotes the development and upgrading of the freight terminal and its facilities by liaising with public and private organisations, locally, in Italy and all over the world.
