Hupac launches P386 semitrailer service between Belgium and Spain

This is a coup for intermodal transport that has been achieved after a successful test period together with the Spanish Railways RENFE and the French SNCF.


As from February 2019, semitrailers with P386 codification can be carried on special pocket wagons. An extra strong XL tarpaulin is required for curtainsiders


The Antwerp-Barcelona shuttle offers daily departures (five days/week) with A-C transit times. The train runs on the standard gauge line up to Barcelona El Morrot, so there is no need to change railcars for the Spanish network.


The loading gauge profile also allows for C45 and C364 swap bodies.


The new service forms part of Hupac’s Shuttle Net West Europe operating unit.
