Spanish perishables now arrive in UK by rail
This September, Transfesa Logistics begins a new express rail service to the UK with refrigerated containers. The British supermarket chain Tesco has partnered with Transfesa to transport fruit and vegetable products from Spain to UK.
In this first stage, Transfesa will be transporting fifteen loads weekly from the Almussafes rail terminal (Valencia) to the Barking rail terminal (UK).
Barking rail terminal is operated by DB Cargo and is a strategic location in the South East of the country. On this route, the wagons pass through the Transfesa axle changing facility at Cerbère in France to adapt, through a simple and quick operation, the exchange of axles to UIC gauge. (ben)
