Transfesa reefer service for Tesco

Madrid, Spain: Transfesa Logistics is starting a new express rail service to the UK with refrigerated containers for Tesco.

In this first stage, it will transport fifteen loads weekly from the Almussafes rail terminal in Valencia, to the Barking rail terminal in the UK.

Barking rail terminal is operated by DB Cargo, which owns Transfesa Logistics. On this route, the wagons pass through the Transfesa axle changing site at the Cerbère to convert the wagons to UIC gauge. The operation, will be reviewed weekly and monthly, and volume may expand depending on the performance.

The departure time for the express service has been changed to 8pm so that fresh produce can be collected on the day of departure. Permits have been requested to increase the weight of the cargo to be transported on high-speed lines in the UK.

The new route to Britain is a return to Transfesa’s roots: in its first years of existence, in the 70s and 80s, the company transported 750,000 tons of produce annually in conventional wagons.
