Transfesa Logistics and Euro Pool System (EPS) have signed an agreement to work together to extend CoolRail routes across Europe. The partnership will see the initial direct rail connection for refrigerated products between Valencia and Rotterdam expanded to countries throughout the continent, including the UK, Scandinavia, Germany and Poland. The service will continue to be called CoolRail.
Bernd Hullerum, CEO of Transfesa Logistics, said: “The association with Euro Pool System is a great opportunity for us to show the fresh produce market that the railroad can be just as fast and reliable as road service. In addition, it contributes to achieve more environmentally friendly supply chains, since a train emits nine times less CO2 than a lorry.”
The new service will make use of the infrastructure of DB Cargo, the main shareholder of Transfesa Logistics.
