The freight villages system is increasingly recognized as a net of logistics knots aimed at enhancing intermodality freight transport. In the freight village, the cooperation between specialized operators allows the management of high levels of goods flows. In a network perspective, freight villages facilitate both internal relationships and external ones. The freight village thus becomes a central knot of logistics network, supporting the development of local economy focused also on sustainability. This work presents empirical evidences about two Italian freight villages identified in best practices as facilitators of open network.
