FRANCE’s Ministry of Ecology and the Spanish Development Ministry have invited expressions of interest for the operation of new piggyback services to carry lorry semitrailers between the two countries.

The ministries are seeking feedback on the implementation of piggyback operations on two long-distance corridors:
• Murcia/Valencia - Barcelona - Avignon - Lyon, and
• Vitoria - Irun - Bordeaux - Paris - Calais/Lille/Metz

The consultation follows an invitation for expressions of interest in the supply of suitable rolling stock, which was issued by the two ministries last year.

The closing date for submission of expressions of interest in the operations consultation is July 16.
