Four new EURO4000 come on stream

MEDWAY has just received in Entroncamento the first of a series of four new diesel locomotives EURO4000. The remaining three locomotives will be delivered by the end of next June. The MEDWAY fleet is thus extended to 68 locomotives.

The arrival of these equipment is in line with the company's ambitions for the future: to value MEDWAY, betting on innovation, sustainability and modernization with a view to improving the national and international transportation of goods and competing in the European market with high quality standards and reliability, in order to make the company the largest logistics operator in the Iberian Peninsula.

In line with the internal policy of the MSC Group - which attributes female names to family members of employees - MEDWAY, the oldest employees were invited to baptize the new equipment: 4 employees were selected, who decided to assign the names of a granddaughter and three daughters to the new EURO4000, placing Matilde, Adriana, Ana Filipa and Mariana on national railway lines.

"This step is in line with our business expansion strategy. With these interoperable locomotives we will be able to make trains in Portugal and between Portugal and Spain without having to change traction. We are very pleased to be in this way adding value to the services we offer our customers, "said Carlos Vasconcelos, Chairman of the Board of Directors of MEDWAY.

The new locomotives represent an investment of 15 million euros.
