A new refrigerated express train from Spain to UK

refrigerated express train from Spain to UK Transfesa Logistics has launched a new refrigerated express train from Spain to UK with two new food routes starting from Valencia and Murcia. It is expected to deliver daily connections which will reduce the level of CO2 emissions, since the circulation of 30 trucks on the road will be avoided.

The company has recently started a new express 72-hour rail link to transport basic necessities such as hygiene, and medical products from the two terminals to London.

“This is another step in the development of our international corridors, thus expanding services to a strategic segment. In Valencia we have also just opened a 2000m² warehouse for food products. The railway is, now more than ever, the most sustainable and reliable means of transport,” Bernd Hullerum, Chief Executive Officer of Transfesa Logistics said.

To respond to the needs of fleets with special characteristics, such as those for perishable supplies, this type of traffic is carried out in refrigerated boxes, thus expanding the activity that Transfesa Logistics had so far operated on a national and international scale.

Currently, these lines serve various companies in the sector to transport fruits and vegetables. The objective is to develop the railway operations with a daily train. For this purpose, a lighter box, of the Unit 45 type, has been incorporated, which allows around 30 containers per train to be moved. In this way, more products can be included, and the capacity of each operation can be expanded.

With the launch of these rail routes, the company adapts its services to the current demand, where the delivery and receipt of food items take precedence to guarantee the population’s supply.

Transfesa Logistics is operating its 66 centres that it has in Spain, the United Kingdom, Portugal, France and Germany, where is located DB Cargo, its main shareholder.
