Primavia, innovation in the transport sector

Primavia is a partnership of two of the sector’s most innovative companies: the international road transportation company, Primafrio, and VIIA, the rail motorway operator of the French group SNCF. Primavia focuses on international multimodal transport – a combination of road and rail transport of perishable goods between Spain and Europe.

The main objective of this union is to transport fruit and vegetable trucks by train via a service that guarantees fast, ecological and responsible transport. This ensures the company is keeping its commitment to the environment, while responding to customer demands and the current challenges of the sector.

Primavia provides the transport of fruit and vegetable trucks by train from Spain to Europe. It operates the first rail motorway leaving Spain, from Barcelona to Betemburgo, joining lines that have already been developed in other European destinations, such as le Boulou-Calais and le Boulou-Luxembourg.

Work on this pioneering project has been ongoing for over two years. It will allow an average of five HuckePack semi-trailers to be loaded each day onto the train. The railway subsidiary only uses HuckePack trailer services (50 of them) and 50 standard refrigerated trailers.

This innovative project by Primavia optimises transportation, reduces environmental impact and improves safety.
