The world’s second-largest shipping line and a leader in transportation and logistics, the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) recently announced the launch of their new freight rail service to connect agricultural producers in Spain and other exporters to international markets.
The creation of this new service will result in improved links between Seville and Cordoba (Spain) and destinations in the Mediterranean, the Middle East and the Far East. The service starts in October 2018.
The service is planned to run twice weekly from both Seville’s Puerto de Sevilla an inland maritime port –– and Cordoba’s cargo rail terminal and the port of Valencia, which is considered a major hub port in the Mediterranean region.
Shippers of Olive Oil are just one sector that will benefit from the new MSC service as it offers better connectivity and significantly improved transit times for exporters in various southern regions of Spain.
The new service will complement the Seville and Sines, Portugal service that was launched earlier in 2018 and is already benefiting Iberian shippers who are looking for faster access to markets for their goods.
