MEDWAY CONNECTS SINES TO MADRID

The first MEDWAY Container train with connection between the Port of Sines and Madrid was held yesterday.

Composed of 29 wagons, that train can carry 61 full tires and has a length of 527 meters.

 It was an exceptional trip organized in the last five days, in order to be able to place in Madrid containers of a ship that had omitted the port of Valencia in its routes.

According to the President of the Board of Directors of MEDWAY, Carlos Vasconcelos, "this train is part of a MEDWAY strategy of action that aims to extend the activity to Spain, while joining forces with the national ports, for a growing expansion Of the hinterland in the Iberian area, using multimodal rail-based solutions. Although this was an exceptional situation, this is a clear demonstration of our ability to respond.
