The company says it is adapting its offering to meet current demand, with the delivery of food items taking precedence.

“This is another step in the development of our international corridors, thus expanding services to a strategic segment,” says Transfesa Logistics CEO, Mr Bernd Hullerum. “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.”

The service will use Unit 45 refrigerated containers, which are lighter and allow up to 30 containers per train to be transported. This will increase capacity for perishable goods, such as fruit and vegetables, and Transfesa plans to expand the service to operate daily.
