Synergy, the logistics operator of Hutchison Ports group, has launched a 3rd train frequency between the Port of Barcelona and Miranda de Ebro. Last October, Synergy decided to expand its multimodal offer by operating the first container train to Miranda Container Terminal (TCM), in Miranda de Ebro, from the Port of Barcelona. Since then, several rail services have been put in place between the two enclaves. From Miranda de Ebro, Synergy covers the areas of Burgos, La Rioja, Vizcaya, Vitoria and Santander. The compnay claims that this has resulted a reduction in transit time of between 7 and 20 days depending on destination (16 – 45% faster) for exporting companies and up to 14 days (35% faster) for importing companies. From the Miranda de Ebro facilities, Synergy offers, in addition to pure railway services, storage services, emptying and filling of containers and transport services. The train composition is conditioned for the transport of containers and can carry all types of goods, from steel sector to food sector. Hutchison Ports group stated that after the success achieved with Noain Intermodal Terminal (TIN), in Pamplona, where there are 6 weekly frequencies with Barcelona, the consolidation of the service with Miranda de Ebro reinforces its commitment to provide northern Spain with a competitive alternative to serve the logistics market from the Port of Barcelona.
