New Spanish-Swiss alliance in operation
It is a new development in trade relations between Spain and Switzerland: the Transnatur Group, whose activities on the Swiss market spans more than 50 years, is entering into a new cooperation with family-owned and independent company M+R Spedag, with joint services set to start on 1 December 2021.
Besides offering more direct services, the partnership will increase the frequency of departures and arrivals from/to Spain and Portugal. To the already existing direct services from Barcelona, Transnatur and M+R Spedag are adding new daily services with the north of Spain and the Mediterranean coast as well as more frequent services with Madrid, Porto and Lisbon.
Transnatur said in a press release: "The new alliance with M+R Spedag means a great push to our business, which has resulted in increased frequency of departures and direct services mainly due to the Swiss company's major economic and strategic investment."
Entering a new chapter, Transnatur also stated that the previous agent's "zero investment and frozen services" led to the change of sides. Expectations are high with regards to "the new alliance and exclusive partnership signed by the two companies." (sh)
