Maersk reefer train

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.

1 day and 12 hours is the transit time for the new rail service for reefer cargo that connects Algeciras and Marin. The new service departs from Algeciras port in Cadiz and arrives at Marin port (Pontevedra) every Friday at midday.

“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 worldwide, and Maersk is committed to achieving net-zero emissions for all its activities by 2040, helping customers fulfil their ESG strategies.

Maersk is launching this new service with a weekly call from Wednesday to Friday, but it expects 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.
