As part of its end-to-end global integrator strategy, A.P. Moller- Maersk (Maersk) launches a new rail service for reefer cargo between its Andalucía hub and Galicia.

„This new train service is intended to give Galician firms agility, flexibility, and resiliency." It facilitates cargo delivery to Galicia ahead of schedule, allowing for weekend deliveries and distribution to final retailers. Furthermore, it helps to reduce the environmental effect, which is a hot topic among many customers committed to reducing CO2 emissions,“ said Diego Perdones Montero, Maersk Managing Director for South West Europe and the Maghreb.

The carbon footprint of cargo flows is one of the most important topics on the agenda of many enterprises around the world and Maersk is committed to achieving net-zero emissions for all its activities by 2040, helping this way customers to fulfill theirs ESG strategies.

One of the primary benefits of this new service for us is the ability to carry our reefer cargo through rail for the first time." Rail travel is one of the most environmentally friendly routes of goods transportation and we are glad to have this transportation option thanks to our collaboration with Maersk.

Maersk is launching this new service with a weekly call from Wednesday to Friday, but it expects to be able to scale the service up in response to the rising demand for environmentally friendly transportation modes.

For project coordination, Maersk has relied on the involvement and support from Algeciras port authority, Marin port authority, Ria de Pontevedra, Marin Container Terminal, Temarin -Grupo Pérez Torres, and the health ministry regulations.
