This regular service, managed by logistics operator Synergy, part of Hutchison Ports group, will be flexible and will increase frequency according to market needs.

Synergy will also offer, in addition to railway services, storage services, container emptying and filling services, as well as transport services. Miranda de Ebro will serve an area that covers the areas of Alava, Burgos, La Rioja, Santander, Palencia and Asturias, among others.

 

This new connection, says Synergy, offers exporters the possibility of sending their goods from the north of the peninsula through the Mediterranean, with a reduction in transit time than ranges between 7-20 days depending on the destination, and to importing companies, an entry of goods through the Mediterranean, with a saving of transit time of up to 14 days (that is 16-45% and 35% faster respectively), providing added value to the entire supply chain.

Synergy already operates 12 services a week between the Port of Barcelona and Noain (Navarra).
