Launch of a new rail connection Perpignan - Saarbrücken
Starting in mid-March 2018 the German operator DB Cargo Logistics launched a new rail connection which links the terminal of Saarbrücken (Germany) with the terminal of Perpignan, situated in the South of France. The train operates five times a week to connect Central Europe with North-eastern Spain.
DB Schenker never had a train solution involving mega-trailers on pocket wagons before and found a perfect partner in Ewals Cargo Care, due to the large fleet of cranable Mega Huckepack Trailers and a strong presence on the Iberian peninsula.
This corridor is an important link in Ewals Cargo Care’s Multimodal Network and provides an eco-friendly alternative to the road freight traffic, strongly reducing the carbon footprint of such transports.
